Shake Rag Welcomes Its Second Writer In Residence

Shake Rag has its second Writer in Residence on campus this week. Her name is Cynthia Gallaher and she is from Chicago. 

Cynthia applied for a grant from the Illinois Art Council earlier this year and just recently learned that she would  receive a small grant from the council. She is taking this time to work on a memoir about the year in which she had fourteen(!) jobs. She will also continue writing her poetry which lately has focused on food poetry, and is looking forward to her time here in Mineral Point to be able to concentrate on her work. Cynthia has been to Mineral Point on several occasions and when she learned of our residency program listed in the spring catalog, she jumped at the opportunity. Check out her blog Journal Writing Tips With a Twist.

Welcome Cynthia! We hope your stay here is productive.
