Artist in Residence, Ravens View Farm



For two weeks this Spring, this will be my view. I've been invited by the proprietors of Ravens View Farm in Peachland, British Columbia, to be their first Artist in Residence. Alison and Mark are old friends from the 1990s, when we all lived in Boulder, Colorado. Now, they're organic fruit tree growers in Canada and I'm a magazine editor in New York City. I'm excited and grateful for this gift of time to focus on my poetry manuscript. Plus I get to be a farmer! For two hours every day, I help out with chores. Then, it's butt-in-the-chair time. No internet, no television. Just me and the page. Gulp.
