Seize the day and begin the story you've been meaning to write!

There are no available registration dates at this time.

You know that story you have been meaning to write? It’s not gonna write itself. Seize the day, during the introspective winter season– well two days to be exact!

Not everyone has a book in them but most people have one story they are driven to write. If you have been yearning to tell one particular story, this course is for you. You know, it’s the one that keeps you up at night, or that appears in your dreams, the one you have carried for many, many years. Are you ready to bring it to the page? And then stand back and let it heal, liberate and transform you?

You will be supported with tools and techniques to get your idea and basic structure on paper, and receive guidance on how to flesh out your story over 48 hours. You colleagues will bear witness to your work.

See what you can accomplish in two days. You won’t leave empty handed. Both fiction and nonfiction accepted.

Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath.  $75/night
