Creativity on the Retreat: We explore the creative process through guided imagery, interviewing characters, writing prompts, and other techniques I've developed to access the imagination and inspire you to take more chances with your writing.
This is not always easy. The imagination speaks to us in the language of dreams. How do you create characters and stories from something as fleeting as flash of inspiration, an image, a piece of dialogue, or sometimes just a feeling?
Understanding the role of the imagination and how it gives shape to characters and their stories is one of the focuses of my retreats. When we embrace the unknown, real creative magic shows up for all of us!
"I really got lost in the writing and characters. I also loved how supportive it felt to be writing in a group for a longer period. That was unexpected!"
"I loved the group discussions and readings. Such depth and diversity to the stories. My writing is coming easier. I feel I can now write about anything."
"My favorite parts of the Retreat were the amazing setting, sense of peace, listening to what others wrote and sharing at so many levels. The food is 5 stars!"
