The Limits of Our Affection...

There are none. We tend to dote on our students. We live and die with your successes and (rare) failures. We want to see you prosper. We want to see you writing, sending work out, receiving acceptance notes, publishing. This is what writers do—write and publish. Pretty much everything we do is aimed at helping you become the artist you are capable of becoming.
