*11/15 Gifts of the Night Writing Retreat and Workshop with Judy Reeves

Date: Sunday November 15, 2015 Time: 10am to 3pm Number of sessions: 1 day only Members: $75 (buy this & sister session for $120 total below) Nonmembers: $90 Location: Ink Spot at Liberty Station

Like our heartbeat and our breath, our intuition continues its work even while we sleep, speaking to us in the language of the night: dreams. Dreams can answer questions and solve problems. They can influence our writing and, in turn, our creative work can alter our dreams. In this retreat we’ll use our notebooks and pens to communicate with the messengers of the night.

The sister class to this workshop is the Family Stories Writing Retreat and Workshop to be held on December 13, 2015. These Creative Writing Retreats & Workshops are a time for exploration and personal expression in community with other like-spirited writers. Join us for a half-day (10 am – 3 pm) when we retreat from the outside world to devote ourselves to our writing. We’ll respond to themed prompts, props, and the inspiring words of others to generate new material in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. No experience is necessary; all levels of writers and all genres of expression are invited to bring their work-in-progress, their notebooks or journals, or simply their imaginations for a day of creative work. Buy both classes together for a total of $120 by clicking on this button.
