Just a few weeks ago I was driving out of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge while debating with Andre Dubus III and Kwame Dawes the pros and cons of this age of connectivity in which we live. What a great way to kick off this year’s Writing by Writers Tomales Bay Workshop.

Back to join Pam Houston for another year were Antonya Nelson and Dorothy Allison, and also teaching classes this year were Andre, Kwame, and Robert Boswell.

Wednesday night, I introduced our guest speaker–the very young Josh Weil, who had to dash out Thursday morning when his wife went into labor.

Faculty readings, fellowship readings, student readings, and panels. Afternoon band/dance party with Kwame singing “Stir It Up” and “No Woman No Cry” with Greg Glazner’s band. And oysters!

Enjoy the slideshow with some of my favorite moments, and lines, from the workshop.
