I have just returned from Milwaukee, where Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers held its 20th anniversary of Returning the Gift–our annual festival. After spending those six days (September 4 – 9) with wonderful poets, writers, publishers and performers– energy was buzzing out of my head! Not to mention the literal heartache of leaving when it was all over. It’s a good thing I took all those photos with my new digital camera, for on the plane ride home, I could re-live some great moments by clicking through all the photos. I’d like to share them with you at this time, via a slideshow. Hover your mouse over the lower left corner, and you can advance the image. If you click on the icon in the right side of the image, you can view a smaller but full photo. There are 22 images. My only regret is that I didn’t get everyone photographed!
I hope you enjoy seeing them all–and please ask me questions about any of these creative souls!
