Courses & Events

A robust summer schedule of courses and retreats begins soon at the River Writing Studio! I'm delighted to offer a couple of bold new courses as well as some that are tried and true. 

Please don't hesistate to retreat with me! I'm returning to two vibrant and stunning landscapes in collaboration with two of the finest teachers I know. 

River Writing

There are just a few spots left in the River Writing Summer Series. Sessions begin mid-June and meet weekly in the studio or online.

If you are new to the practice of River Writing or just wanting to refresh, try a One Night Stand!

If you are in the mood, join us for Toward Erotica, a debut series of focused River Writing offerered new this season by the bold and beautiful facilitator Jeanette Snyder!

Short Courses

If you would like to deepen your intimacy and enjoyment of poetry, join me for another debut course: Tuning to the Mythopoetic, A Poetry Appreciation Course exploring the way music and meaning are made in verse. We'll take turns reading aloud, all the while tuning our ear to truths made evident by the great mythopoetic conversation. As we deepen our experience with poetry through the ages, we'll reap the sacred benefits of collective human experience and wisdom. 

Do you have notebooks full of generative writing? Are you ready to shape, revise, and share? Then the Course in Revision is for you. Together we'll tune up the details and the music and gently let go of excess words. Participants will take part in a reading. Take this well-supported step if at least part of you is longing to publicly share your work.
