My Spalding 2003 MFA garden

After my 2003 Spalding MFA graduation, I thought about what each mentor had done for me and my fiction, Back Home in Landing Run.


Roy Hoffman plowed the ground, turned it over, and rearranged the whole garden.

Connie May Fowler added the sunshine, rain, and nutrients.

Robin Lippincott hoed the weeds, and tied the vines to the poles.

Phil Condon helped in harvesting, advised what to pick, what to cull, and where to market.
