Mendocino Art Center, Winter 2016 Writing Classes

Self taught one workshop last winter at the Mendocino Art Center. This winter, she’s teaching two. Thanks to Karen Bowers, who invited her back:

Jan. 22 – 24 (Friday to Sunday): JOURNEYS — Exploring Inward While Traveling Outward

Grounding in the World — it’s what the best travel writers have. The journey to another place is never just personal. It grounds the travel writer in a culture, a world that speaks to a sense of discovery, the urge to explore, and test boundaries. It brings the traveler out of private headspace and into the people around them.

Travel writing has experienced a kind of renaissance in the book publishing world. While the world shrinks and previously exotic landscapes become more and more accessible, the field of travel writing is splintering into sub-genres: Women’s Travel Writing; Extreme Adventure Travel Writing; the Naturalist as Travel Writer.


Winter: Elk, California

Feb. 6 – 7 (Saturday & Sunday): ONE STORY, SIX WAYS (All prose writing; no distinction between fiction and memoir)

Just what it says, folks. Bring in one piece (There will be in-class writing as well, so don’t stress if you have nothing). The piece that has you all tied up in knots because you’ve been trying and trying to tell this story forever. And now it’s dead in the water and you don’t know what to do.

We’ll do that piece six different ways. Some of the ways:

flash fiction * conversation/dramatic monologue * split point of view * setting and landscape/mood * episodic * splintered consciousness

Interested? Sign up at the Mendocino Art Center:
