Next Workshop & Retreat Are Coming Right Up!

Dude would've been a lot less tortured if only he'd attended Spike's workshop

It's time for another six-week workshop, people!

Everyone has a story to tell, and writing yours down and sharing it aloud (optional) offers freedom, healing, amusement and all sorts of other feelings you might not initially associate with the act of committing your life adventures to the page. This workshop has morphed over the years, shaped very much by participant input and requests, and forgive me for saying so myself, but damn, it is a thing of beauty! You can expect a lot of sharing/workshopping, some in class writing time, and a few words each week from yours truly about the state of the art. You’ll also have an opportunity to participate in a public reading—I host these a few times per year for students who wish to share their stories with a larger audience. 

It's also time for another retreat!
For those of you who prefer intensive style workshops, I've got a three-day retreat coming up, too. 

Here are dates and details for the workshop and the retreat:

Thursday Six-Week Series
Six Thursdays, November 14, 2013 - December 27, 2012. We will NOT meet on Thanksgiving. 7-9 pm. Cost: $250. A $50 non-refundable deposit holds your space. We meet in Central Austin. Email me to reserve your spot.

December Weekend Retreat
December 14, 15, 16. Don’t tell me that December is too busy with holiday plans. That’s exactly my point—take time for YOURSELF and forget the holiday pressure to do shit you don’t want to do in the first place. This retreat is an excellent way to get ready for the New Year, to make an early commitment to yourself to take care of you. We meet on Friday, December 14th from 7 – 9 pm for a dinner to discuss our weekend goals. Saturday we meet from 10 – 4:30 for lots of writing and some sharing. Sunday we meet from 10 – 2 for more of the same. Cost is $125. All meals included (meals are vegetarian and I will honor  your dietary restrictions). $50 non-refundable deposit holds your space. Location TBA but it will be central. Email me to reserve your spot.
