Last night the Loft held its first Members Happy Hour. This event, held before one of the Mentor Series readings (with Dinty Moore), was a celebration of the Loft and its supporters. Free wine, nibbles, and conversation. I was asked to speak about my experience with the Loft Mentor Series in 2009-2010 as proof of the good things the Loft does.
On the night of my Mentor Series reading in 2010, someone shook my hand and told me to remember this night, that my life "would never be the same." He was right; it hasn't been the same. But really, it hasn't been the same since I took my first class at the Loft almost ten years ago.
