Executive Director, Ellen Waterston, and Residency Manager, John Martin, both have recently published new collections of poetry.  John Martin’s Hold This won the Concrete Wolf Louis Award for a first collection of poetry which included publication. Ellen Waterston’s Hotel Domilocos is her fourth poetry title and was published by Moonglade Press. Both Waterston and Martin benefitted from residencies at PLAYA before assuming their administrative roles at the Summer Lake retreat campus, the inspiration and productivity of those residencies fueling their desire to give back to the organization.
