Description: At the heart of every story lies a tale of transformation, and the ancient forest contains them all. In this weekend workshop, we will explore the wild and tangled woods in search of stories of birth, death, love, desire, destruction, resilience, and healing. Our discoveries will be our guides as we write the stories of the transformative experiences that have shaped us.

Our time together will be a balance of exploration, lively writing exercises, sharing, storytelling, and free time. You can expect to get face-to-face with the spongy forest floor, towering trees, a bluegreen river, and your own grittiest tales.

This workshop is a great opportunity for writers of all genres and experience levels to generate rich new material in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
