On April 23rd, Christine DeSmet (center) was awarded the Robert and Caroll Heideman Award for Excellence in Public Service and Outreach. As many of you know, Christine started Writers’ Institute 25 years ago. She also started the Write-by-the-Lake Writer’s Workshop and Retreat (which turns “Sweet Sixteen” this June) and Weekend with Your Novel, which debuted in the 1990’s. We are thankful every day for Christine’s hard work, talent, dedication, and enthusiasm. Congratulations, Christine!
It’s so lovely in downtown Madison these days, it’s hard to believe we got snow just about a month ago! I thought I’d share a few photos.
Hope you’re all soaking up the beauty wherever you are!
