Kathleen Brown is a member of The Vagabond Trust. The Trust is a group for writers that provides space for meeting and editing, a reading series in Toronto and Fredericton and annual retreats to write in places that are on the verge of severe, startling and remarkable transition. In 2008 the Trust rode many ferries through the port towns of Southern Newfoundland from Port-aux-Basques to St. John’s. Our stories from that trip are being shared in various literary magazines. Check out QWERTY Winter 2009 for a special feature on the Trust’s Newfoundland Trip.

Charlotte and I, accepting that we just aren't going to get drier. I think this was the day we burned all our wet clothes, and our towels. Towels just made us sad. There was no point to them. Towels and socks, up in flames.

On top of the cliffs of Francois. Day before rescue.
