Workshops that bridge creativity, spirit, community and intellect. For those passionate (or curious) about the transformative power of stories—written or oral, remembered or conjured, told or withheld.

I design private retreats for individuals or small groups with specific interests.

I also teach a course on memoir at the annual Write on the French River Creative Writing Retreat. Ideal for emerging writers looking for community, or seasoned writers who need down time to focus on a longer work. Also ideal for anyone drawn to historic waterways.

From time to time I am also on staff at Mosaic Retreats in London, Ontario, where the focus is on small group work for dedicated professionals, or those who want to deepen self expression and empathy by developing a writing practice.
