In 2016 Storyknife hosted its inaugural Fellow, Kim Steutermann Rogers, for the month of September.
Kim arrived on September 1st and departed on September 30th. While she was here she wrote 249 pages, which was better than I did that month. She integrated so fully into the Homer community that total strangers came up to me in Safeway to ask, “How’s the writer doing?” She wrote that on her first day in Frederica I told her, “You’re a dream come true.” She was, in just about every imaginable way.
In short, she set the bar pretty high for the writers who will follow her at Storyknife. That doesn’t scare me. It inspires me to reach even higher.
So in 2017, Frederica Cabin at Storyknife will host four women writers, one each in the months of June, July, August and September. The application period begins today, December 15th and runs through January 27th.
