Next April, on Orcas Island, a small group of people will join together to unleash creative freedom and learn more about storytelling and writing through the experience of Write: a Doe Bay Workshop. Hosted at the Doe Bay Resort, this second annual workshop marries songwriting, poetry, memoir and community to deliver a remarkable experience for anyone interested in unlocking the narrative within.
I am honored to be a presenter at Write: Doe Bay, 2014 and am looking forward to sharing, learning and building community with a group of creative writers I so admire: Nici Holt Cline, Claire Bidwell Smith and Daniel Blue.
This isn’t just a workshop; it’s a life experience. You’ll hike, soak in hot tubs, tell stories over community meals at big tables, make friendships, listen to music, return to the process of real writing with pen and paper and hopefully leave more in tune with yourself as an artist.

Oh, and Daniel Blue will be singing for you.
Only 25 tickets will be sold. Workshop runs from April 10-13. If you’re interested in attending Write: Doe Bay, you can register here. If you have questions about the event, you can e-mail [email protected].
And please. Don’t let “I’m not a writer” keep you from this. Do you love to write? Do you want to learn more about unlocking your story? Are you inspired by the thought of this? Then, of course you belong there.
They say the island is magical. We’ll find out next April.
