|I'm excited about the publication of Waterlines! A collaboration of five poets (of which I am one) and four photographers living near the shores of Lake Michigan. The anthology of poems by Linda Avery, myself, Mary Haab, Mark Hiskes and Peg Padnos, bring into sharp focus the beauties of a region where dune grass and fresh water meet hardwood and pine forests. Emotionally ranging wherever loss and love and hope abide. Price: $14.99 (which includes shipping) Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. to order.|
2012 - 2013 OFFERINGS
Come Write with Me retreats and writing groups ending...
Come Write with Jack– continuing!
Well - it has been another wonderful year hosting Jack Ridl's retreats and workshops here at the house. Sixty (yes - it happened to me this summer) seems a little late to enroll in an MFA program.
But in a way - I feel the MFA program has come to me, fills my living room (and my kitchen and dining room when there is lunch offered). A personalized MFA as I participate in on all Jack's workshops. Each time learning something new, something more, something deeper about the art of writing.
Plus - a community is forming around these retreats. Learning from Some Masters can be taken again and again as Jack offers us new poet "masters" each time, asking what we can learn from the way different poets write, lifting up their themes, their skills. And so former participants return again and again.
There is the intimate community of writers (12) in Landscapes of Poetry. A writing group and workshop that meets monthly between June and October. (This one is hard to get into - as those participating have returned year after year - but there are usually one or two openings each year.)
Then something new: "A Writing Getaway" - two dates scheduled for day retreats by the shores of Lake Michigan, to be inspired and encouraged, a day to write (and write and write) with others who love to write. Take one or both!
See more under upcoming dates for more info about all of the above.
And come write with us!
