By 1935, Still had established a place for himself in Knott County, Kentucky. This chapter tells of his travels beyond the county to attend writers workshops in North Carolina (Blowing Rock), Vermont (Breadloaf), New Hampshire (MacDowell), and New York (Yaddo). His experiences connected him with a world of writers. Key figures who became friends and supporters were Edwin Grover, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Robert Francis, Joy Davidman, Elizabeth Madox Roberts, Delmore Schwartz, Katherine Ann Porter and a couple closer to home James Stokely and Wilma Dykeman.
