Two and a half days of Kimbilio, and all I can manage is the formula:
1. Twenty-two brilliant, generous, engaged, passionate, compassionate, excited and wonderfully diverse writers
2. A beautiful remote mountainside retreat, where it’s pleasantly cool and the staff is as welcoming and attentive as they can be.
3. The generous support of colleagues back home at SMU English.
4. And all this happening at the time when it’s most needed.
Mix well. Add a Supermoon. Stand back and watch what happens.

The twenty-two also include my brilliantly talented colleagues ZZ Packer and Dolen Perkins Valdez and our amazing hard-working on-site coordinator Diana Napier.
