Creating a Writing Life Retreat
Retreats are day long events that empower writers, invite creativity and offer
much needed time for sharing and reflection. Connect with other writers and
with nature, nurturing the soul work that is writing. Explore ways to delve
deeper into the dream of creating a writing life, exchange ideas and make time
to honor your passion for writing. Retreats include continental breakfast and
gourmet box lunch. A guest speaker from the literary field will give a special
presentation. We will write, share our work, have fun and celebrate the writing
life. Retreats offered once or twice annually and are held at my cottage on
Mason's Island in Mystic.
"You wrote about me as an artist, but you are also an
artist. You took items from the essence of our conversation and wove them
into a graceful well designed journalistic essay."
- P.R. Wyoming, RI
"I wanted you to know how inspirational and helpful your writing workshop was for me. It truly gave me the confidence and validation that I needed to continue to pursue my love of writing. Best wishes to you and your writing life. I look forward to attending your workshop again next year."
