Kick Start Your Writing for Fall - With Us! (only two spots left)

Join us at the Sylvia Beach Hotel!
Nine months ago Kelli Russell Agodon and I imagined: what if. What if we designed a writing retreat based on community, generosity, and creativity -- what would it look like? What if we could meet everyone's needs? What if we set out to try? And now from one tantalizing idea to a full-fledged event, we are in awe of what a sense of wonder can breed. Today Kelli and I met to finalize the schedule of workshops, one on one sessions, surprises, and awesome snacks. We can't believe we will be packing up the car next Friday and heading out to the Oregon coast. It's wild what a little sense of wonder can do. Come join us in the realm of the imagination. Poets (and soon-to-be poets) are converging from across the country. Spending the weekend of September 11th in contemplation and play seems just right to me. And oh yes, we're by the ocean.

  1. I wish! It just looks beautiful, and sounds like it will be a wonderful time. Maybe another year...

  2. Sounds amazing but, alas, I am in Virginia and that takes quite a bit of planning (AND gas money!)
