Writing from the Heart with Nancy Aronie at Boulderwood Farm, Stockbridge, MA - January 9-11, 2015

One of THE best things I have ever done was to take a writing workshop with Nancy Aronie. She believes creativity requires safety. And it does. We all have a story and Nancy coaches it out of us by inspiring us to put it on the page. Get the rawness down. Put the emotional brokenness on the page.

If you have been wanting to write or are already a writer and want to find your authentic voice, this workshop is for you!!  I was so INSPIRED by Nancy that I invited her to do her workshop at my home, Boulderwood Farm.  She is so excited to come to Stockbridge, MA in early January, 2015!!  The only requirement she asked of me was to make sure there is snow.  So, I am already praying to the snow gods!!  

Please join me and Nancy Aronie for a weekend retreat.  We will begin on Friday evening with opening remarks from Nancy and a casual supper at 7pm. On Saturday, we will write and read from 9-12, break for lunch, and reconvene for some more writing and reading from 1-5.  Everyone will be on their own for dinner.  Sunday, we begin at 9 and finish at noon with Nancy's traditional bread breaking.  

Workshop Fee: $475.  Includes Welcome Dinner, Coffee, tea and snacks both days, Lunch on Saturday and yummy homemade breads on Sunday. If you are coming from out of town, I can provide acoomodations at Boulderwood for $125/night single occupancy or $75pp/double occupancy. Boulderwood is a wonderful c.1900 shingle-style home set on 80 acres.  We have horses, chickens, cows and a border collie. Our living room has the following quote carved in the cornice of our living room: "And this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stone, Good in Everything." Shakepeare, As You Like It. Between the setting and Nancy's coaching, you are in for a treat!!
