On July 13, two days into a 10-day residency for the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Master of Fine Arts program, I scrawled a few lines in my journal before falling into bed in a stupor: “My head is spinning, I’m exhausted, and I am in bliss.”
Last winter, we gave our readers a window into the Stonecoast residency with a photo essay that sought to describe the experience via images. Now that the 2013 summer residency has come to a close, we’d like to do the same for our 10 memorable days together in Maine. Enjoy!
This is how it would be, surely: Five years after graduating on a hot July night, I’d return to the Stonecoast summer residency for a visit.
