Why New Orleans?

Writing, it is said, is a solitary endeavor. In New Orleans, though, we have access to a wide community of writers and that transforms the isolation into a broad support system. That community of writers, itself, receives artistic support in the eclectic neighborhoods that distinguish this city from others, creating an experience of inclusion rather than exclusion, of unity rather than alienation.

More European than American, more laissez-faire than Puritanical, racially and culturally diverse, surrounded and permeated by water, fiercely proud of its history, New Orleans' passion for life and generosity of spirit make it the ideal atmosphere for sustained creative work.
