different to me than the enveloping, rather soft gray of the Pacific
Northwest, which I love. The drizzle, the fog settling over Puget
Sound, the wood smoke, the green canopy of forest -- it's all very
cozy and, in fact, that environment puts me in a writerly mood much
more than Montana's big, blue expanses do. I've always thought I'd be
much farther along in my writing career if I'd stayed on Lopez Island!
I'm not sure who teaches at UW. I have two friends there now who seem
to like it very much, and it has a good reputation, out West, at
least. I do know they require proficiency in a second language (or, at
least, they used to), which immediately disqualifies some applicants.
They have a Website and, while I don't know what its url is, I imagine
you'd find it easily by doing a search on Yahoo. I think UW's main
page might be http://www.uw.edu, but, again, I'm not sure. You might
also check WWU in Bellingham. As for low-res options, Antioch's
program looks really intriguing, and it only requires a residency of a
couple weeks each year, I believe. Keep me posted on your search!
