Marfa, Writer
Fall 2010

“Marfa might possibly be the perfect writer’s retreat.  Remote, quiet, starkly beautiful, and equipped with just enough worldly essentials to keep one nourished without major distraction, the town almost feels like it was designed to be itself a sabbatical.  I accomplished more in one month in Marfa than I have in whole semesters back home, and for this I am grateful and indebted.”
