Mondays at Skimmilk:
In the summer of 2005, documentary filmmaker Ken Browne visted
Skimmilk Farm during a workshop to document the goings as part of a gift
to Jean Pedrick. A few weeks later, he returned to interview writers individually
on camera. Two years later, Mondays at Skimmilk: 30 Years of Writers at
Work was debuted on New Hampshire Public Television. It has since been
picked up by American Public Television and broadcast at public television
stations across the country.
Profiles of individual poets and writers, often of tragic nature, have been done," says filmmaker Ken Browne, "but a documentary portrait of a group of joyful, sane writers supporting each other over many years, seemed a great opportunity - luckily, the choice of the Skimmilk Farm workshop provided more wit, wisdom, and insight into the craft of writing than I could have imagined."
The film, with music by the Borealis Wind Quartet, is narrated by New Hampshire Public Radio's Laura Knoy.
