Michelle and I both applied for scholarships to the Highlights Writers Foundation Workshop in Chautauqua, New York.
We found out this week that we're both going! There was a bit of drama in the whole process. I found out a while ago that I'd been awarded a scholarship. But Michelle didn't hear anything for weeks.
She discovered Friday that her e-mail notification had been sent 12 days ago; she just never got it.
As you can imagine, there was rejoicing all round, as the picture clearly shows.*
Now I know there are some Highlights alumni (hi, Tess and Fran!) out there- and perhaps even some folks who will be attending this year. Please identify yourselves! And I'd love to hear any comments you have about the whole experience.
*I'm the tall one, and Michelle (like all grammar experts) is the cool one with shades.
