Join me as I lead a different writer’s workshop on three Wednesday evenings from 6 – 9 p.m. at a wonderful new literary center, the Merry Barn Writers’ Retreat at 417 River Road in Edgecomb, Maine. Each three-hour workshop will include time for writing, listening, learning, reflecting, and enjoying each other’s stories. A light supper catered by Oak Street Café is included and will be served at the break. You’ll want to bring a notebook or paper and your favorite pen for writing.

Choose from one or more of the workshops:
1. Wednesday, July 17, 6 – 9 p.m. ($80) Begin to Tell a Story of Your Life. We all have amazing life stories to share but sometimes it’s hard to get started. We’ll use a variety of techniques and examine possible different formats to help you make a serious start on your story.
2. Wednesday, July 24, 6 – 9 p.m. ($80) Can I Write THAT?: Handling a Difficult Topic. Fear of controversy or hurting someone’s feelings can stymie self expression, particularly when you’re working in memoir.
3. Wednesday, July 31, 6 – 9 p.m. ($80) Good to Great: Add Depth and Variety to Your Writing. More expressive vocabulary, a different verb tense, dialogue, judicious editing — there are lots of ways to shake up your writing habits and give your work clarity and immediacy. We’ll experiment with some basic changes and see what happens.
