Why Ellen?

Why NOT Ellen? 

Ellen Gilchrist is an extraordinarily amazing writer of 20+ books, the most recent of which she wrote last year at age 86ish. 

Out of those books we chose I, Rhoda Manning, Go Hunting With My Daddy because Rhoda is a spunky goddess. And studying Gilchrist's craft is a perfect companion for this summer's workshop theme. And because Gilchrist is writer who's name isn't dropped every day here in the Northwest. And because you should buy her books!
