Workshops & Retreats

Workshop Methods

I use two primary methods in my workshops and retreats:

 

The Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method, founded by Pat Schneider, which is a time-tested way to encourage writers to be bold and playful with their writing.

 

Journaling, which draws on the pioneering work of Kathleen Adams, founder of the Center for Journal Therapy and the Journal to the Self® method.

 

I have indicated which method is primary in each of the listings below (although sometimes I do like to mix and match!). For more information about each of these methods, click on the links above.

Wild Words: A Poetry Extravaganza! (with Summer Hardinge)

 

Saturday, June 13, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Online via Zoom

 

For some of us, the word "poetry" conjures images of thick, impenetrable anthologies and too many rules. We don't imagine that poetry can be wild and fun, and that it can liberate our true writing voice. To dispel that idea, I invite you to join us and discover the joy that comes from "foolin' around with words," as my co-leader Summer Hardinge likes to say. All writers are welcome, whether you have ever tried poetry or not.
