2017 Friends Chautauqua

Thanks to all who joined us on Sunday, June 18, for the Friends Chautauqua. Late evening thundershowers did not deter the participants who enjoyed great good, lovely music, and wonderful company at our annual fundraiser. Mother Nature rewarded our perseverance with a gorgeous rainbow at the end of the event. Thank you to our sponsors, guests, and students for a terrific evening!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2017 Summer Writer in Residence

"My residency at Lakeside Lab was incredible for my professional career as a writer. Not only did I secure a freelancing job and launch my own personal website during my time here, but I finished a short story that I read aloud to the Iowan public. I wrote over 100,000 words in just over a month, adding chapters to a novel and writing drafts to a few shorter pieces. The Lab is truly a blessing for unfettered creativity and productivity. I am indebted to the Lakeside Writer-in-Residence program for propelling me forward in my writing career and giving me the tools and motivation to continue forward in this profession. Thank you very much."
— Mariah Manoylov, 2017 Lakeside Summer Writer in Residence
