Let me take you on a little tour of Storyknife.
On the right hand side of the above photo, you can see the road leading to Storyknife. On the left hand side, you can see where the road will end and Eva’s House, the main house of Storyknife, will be built. And yeah, in the background, some seriously charismatic mountains just over Cook Inlet. That’s what the women writers at Storyknife will be looking at from their cabins, from the dinner table, from their desks.
This will be the view from the three cabins on the left side of the main house as you face the inlet. Nice, huh? It’ll be a little greener in the spring and summer.
This will be the view from the cabins on the right-hand side of Eva’s House. It wasn’t even a perfectly clear day, but I want you to envision it.
If you follow us on Facebook, you might have seen posts about all the people for whom we are grateful – supporters, fellows, our founder Dana Stabenow, and now, the land itself that will provide a place for women writers to pursue their craft and build a community that will continue to branch outward. We’d like to take this moment to thank you, individuals who are interested in Storyknife, who are interested in writing, in supporting women’s voices. We’re grateful to be building Storyknife with you.
Remember, donations until the end of the year are being matched by Nancy Nordhoff, founder and benefactor of Hedgebrook. Every donation puts us that much closer to providing a place to honor and nurture women writers. We really want to break ground in April 2019, and with your help, we can.
