Learning, Exploration and Sharing Have No Boundaries.

Professor Madison was an inaugural contributor and her words graced the premier issue of aaduna back in 2011. She was one of the initial contributors who read their work at aaduna's first public reading convened at the Seward House Museum in Auburn, NY. And since those "back in the day" years, she has become a contributing editor for our online literary and visual arts journal; continued to progress her literary influences through a recent book publication (Threed, This Road Not Damascus, Trio House Press, Inc., 2019;) as a participant in a juried writing retreat in France, and professor at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida.
Tamara was a featured reader at aaduna's 2019 Halloween Gala Fundraiser (an annual event usually on the Thursday before the Memorial Day weekend) and then the next day at the City of Auburn's First Friday initiative convened at the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center (ERHC.) She conducted a writing workshop for local writers who had varying degrees of writing experience. While the photos in this blog note the participants at the circular table, there were other "guests" we did not capture who were at rectangular tables. Oops.
The workshop participants enjoyed the experience and inquired when she would return.
Time will tell!
