about workshops and residencies 
with Diane Gallo

Dear Diane:

I just wanted to let you know that a poem that I revised while in your 
summer class at Skidmore was not only published, but also was nominated for a Pushcart Prize for 2002. "Fairytales and Dustballs" was published by Ancient Paths Literary Magazine in Oct/02. The results for the Best of the Small Presses will be announced in April yet I feel like to be nominated with such a great pool of writers is an honor.

I have also been working on reading my poetry aloud since your wonderful rendition of the "[Two Dollar] Mommy" poem. Wow! I left thinking, one day I want to recite my poetry like that. You were an inspiration and a wonderful teacher. I thought of Janice Lawry's class "Sharing the Journey" and thought of you. There was a reason I walked into your class that day after Pat Carr mentioned you in her class the day prior.

Thanks again. You are an inspiration.
