Autumn 2022

Women's Writing Workshops

In-person & Online




September 24 & October 22, 9:30 - 1:30

Slowly, I've begun teaching in-person again, outdoors only, and, oh, it's lovely to be
with a small group of women sitting in a circle in my Monterey, CA backyard.

This fall I'm offering two workshops, maybe three, depending on the weather.

September 24 & October 22 are for sure, and maybe Sunday,  November 13.

We'll meet from 9:30 - 1:30. Like the online workshops, there'll be two writing periods, but additionally, tea and morning snack and a beverage to go with your bag lunch. The fee is $75 and limited to 12 participants. To enroll, please email to confirm there's space:


Saturdays, 9/17, 10/15, 11/19 & 12/17,

9:30 - 12:30 (Pacific)

When the pandemic began, with a new book just coming out, I transitioned quickly to leading workshops and book events online—I had to! And it didn't take long for my reluctance about that shift to evaporate. I continue to offer online workshops for a variety of reasons, one being how well it works. It's very close, closer than I could have imagined, to being physically together. Inspiration happens. Writing happens. A sense of community, of being among kindred spirits is no less true than when sitting in a room together. And people can attend no matter where they live—I love that!

If you'd like to be inspired, for your imagination to be lit, to put that pen to page, over and over again, join us for the support, encouragement, joy, and community that will give you the momentum to reach for that pen!

Come for all four sessions or for just one Saturday morning.

Stare to your heart's content—there is so much to see—and then infuse,

expand and deepen your experiences by writing

in the company of other women also engaged in such discovery.


Each session includes two writing periods inspired by a range of materials.

Our morning concludes with  an opportunity for those who wish

to share something they’ve just written.


$215 for all four sessions.

$65 for individual sessions.
