09/16 Writing with the Moon: A Full-Moon Writing Workshop with Judy Reeves

Posted by on Jul 13, 2016 in Classes, Events | Comments Off on 09/16 Writing with the Moon: A Full-Moon Writing Workshop with Judy Reeves

Myth and legend are written in the shadowed rills and rifts of the moon, across her craters and crescents. Disappearing, then reappearing, she casts her silvery light on the earth and inspires poets and lovers, farmers and fishermen. She causes tides to shift and coyotes to howl. She calls us from our beds at night and begs us to tell our tales beneath her celestial glow. For our Full Moon Writing Workshop, we’ll meet at The Ink Spot, then find our way outside...

Posted by on Jul 13, 2016 in Classes, Events | Comments Off on 08/28 The Ex- Factor — Writing About The Way We Were with Judy Reeves

Every part of our lives is rife with stories, but something about “the ex- factor” always hits a nerve—painful, laughable, heartbreaking, and sometimes, an audible sigh of relief. One thing it seems all our stories about our “exes” have in common is their richness.
