Modern Love Weekend Retreat: October 11th through 13th.

“What We Write About When We Write About Love”

5-Day Memoir Retreat: October 14th through 19th.

“Finding and Shaping Your Original Material”

Click above for details and registration links.  The first Modern Love weekend is full but there’s a growing wait-list. Subscribe to that list if interested and we may offer a second Modern Love retreat, also in October.

Find my Modern Love essay, from November of 2018 here: “I Would Have Driven Her Anywhere.” 

And an interview from 2014, by Vela Magazine editor Amanda Giracca:Crafting Memoir and Doing Grief.” Amanda studied memoir with me at Prescott College.
