Poet Luisa Caycedo-Kimura has been nominated for another writing residency! She’ll spend a week in Ragsdale, a non-profit artists’ community in Lake Forest, 30 miles outside of Chicago, located on architect Howard Van Doren Shaw’s country estate. It looks like a gorgeous, quiet place to write.
Way to go, Luisa! and we hope you have a wonderful and productive time.
