The Leeway Foundation is up there with Hedgebrook in the category of how does this exist?
But damn do I appreciate places of exception.
And, no, not just because I recently received notice of being awarded an Art and Change grant.

More because of how beautifully The Leeway Foundation does what it does. How it continues to inspire, push and promote an inspiring cadre of artists.
(For example, Michelle Ortiz, who has an art opening on Oct. 17th with her collective, Las Gallas.)

The Art and Change grant money will go towards the publication of the VONA anthology, the forthcoming book from my small press, Thread Makes Blanket.
Again and again, thank you Leeway.
