Happy Throwback Thursday! Enjoy this long portrait of the class of 1929. The photographer took the picture by placing the students in a circle and using a string to mark where one picture ended to perfectly splice all the students together as one large photo πŸ“·πŸŽ“ See MoreSee Less

OK this is now an "Ear Worm" I cannot get the chorus out of my head. Because today is indeed a very good day. Sure don't know about tomorrow.

Monday Morning Mention: We wrapped up Writers Workshop last week in the same way we always do. We ended the week of inspiration, expression, and phenomenal food with a group picture and the Briar Sermon.

I was there for the workshop that year and learned to identify myself as an Appalachian writer. That identity made me proud and inspired me to continue to write what my genes, my heart and memories dictated. I like to think I made a difference in enlightening readers and writers who attended some of my readings and workshops.

We were thrilled to welcome Workshop alum Sarah McCartt-Jackson to campus to lead a poetry writing weeklong residency for studets in Hindman Settlement Schools Summer Dyslexia Tutoring Program. 

Check out their creativity!

"At the time when I made it I wasn’t really going through anything of a certain nature, just kind of feeling down and feeling stuck because nothing had really changed…So I made that piece you know, just to keep your faith. Things are going to get better you just have to keep working at it."
