Writing as Refuge Workshop

At this writing workshop all levels are welcome – you work at your pace. I offer personal attention to every participant during the workshop and a free followup consultation afterward, by phone, email, or in person, if feasible.

Anyone who writes experiences how it taps a different brain from the everyday one. Invariably, the writing space, entered as in meditation, allows loss and submerged pain to float to surface. Writers often face these feelings, along with the joyful ones, as signage to meaningful, redemptive stories, taking refuge in the practice. Consider this daylong workshop, a safe haven for personal writing—about loss or gain. We will write, chat, and work on crafting your precious material, with occasional personalized “soft” critiques.
