Francisco Goldman's letter
Residencies

UCROSS

A ranch in Wyoming. 
“In Ucross, I learned two things about myself. One was my ferocious fear of wild animal life (at night I nervously imagined being bitten by a snake), the second was my lack of confidence in writing. After forging Clear Creek barefoot, walking by myself through Ucross grounds, and riding a bike at night, I realized that the only way to enjoy life‘s landscapes and the process of writing is by forgetting these fears at least 10 hours a day.”
—Aura Estrada on her Ucross residency, spring 2004
