Farrah Field returns from her Four Way Books sponsored residency in Provincetown:

" I have finally returned to the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn. I just wanted to express my deepest gratitude for my stay in Provincetown. Thank you so much. I feel like the luckiest person alive! I wrote so much while I was there. The internet connection in my room was not to be trusted, but it turned out to be a good thing. I wrote free from all distractions--reading blogs and whatnot. I read so much and caught up on a few films I'd been meaning to watch. I feel like a whole new person."
