WRITING THROUGH GRIEF workshop, December 6-8

So many times when I teach non-fiction writing, people writing about grief get lost among the other topics of coming of age, travel tales, cooking stories, love stories, etc. 

and so many times people who haven't experienced grief don't know how to talk about it. 

In this workshop, we will work on just the topic of grief. No one will tell you to "get over it."  No one will not understand. You will work on how to write your grief story in a safe environment with people who get it. 

And: the food is great too!

Conference begins with cocktail hour at 5 on Friday, December 6. We will have our first session after dinner that night. 

Saturday morning we will have a session and then free time to write. Our next session will be Saturday late afternoon and our final one will be Sunday morning. 

Whispering Pines Conference Center is a gorgeous place in the woods on a lake. Great place to write, think, walk...

It's in Exeter, RI, accessible by Amtrak to Kingston, RI or Providence, RI. By plane to Providence. Or by car. We'll pick you up at the airport or train and get you back there on Sunday. 

I understand their is another group meeting there that weekend and for some reasons massages will be available!

I hope to see you there!
