One response to “Robert Hamberger”
Thank you David, what a treat this will be. Thank you all at KS for your teaching and example this past year. I have enjoyed each session and hopefully my own writing is improving as I edit and edit and edit. I still learn from workshop notes and from re-reading notes and poems in Folio. I look forward to renewing my membership when it is due.
