A Summer Retreat for Writers

An Autumn Writing Workshop

Let’s explore deeper self-awareness and new outlets for creativity as we seek clarity, simplicity, and silence crossing over to the winter side of life. We’ll use our inner wisdom to structure a solid piece of writing to share in a non-judgmental environment.

Date & Time: Sat., Nov. 10, from 11am to 3:30pm
Presenter: Karen Rippstein
Fee: $50


Writing Tuesdays: A Series

Writing Tuesdays invite you to explore your creativity in response to prompts and examples of published works where you’ll shape your words into prose, poetry, or journal musings. This summer series, on the 2nd Tuesday in June, July and August, are two hour sessions. It helps to maintain a writer’s journal so you’ll always have material at hand. Bring a favorite pen and notebook to record ideas into stories in a non-judgmental environment. Sharing is optional. Bring lunch, if  you wish. Bring your suit and towel to enjoy a dip in the pool after the workshop!

Date & Time: Tuesdays, 1-3pm
