Join me: Writing Retreat in Venice!
In a slight departure from my weekly Postcards From the Edge, today I’m posting about an upcoming event in Venice, Sept 2019 that YOU can join us on!
I am very excited that two of my favourite women, Janet Simmonds, owner of Grand Tourist and published author, poet and essayist, Sophfronia Scott have put their incredible talents together and are taking a small group of writers to the countryside of Venice. With guided tours by Janet, a specialist on Italy, and 5 workshops and additional seminars taught by Sophfronia Scott, ‘THE WRITE OF YOUR LIFE’ promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Here’s just a small sampling of what Sophfronia will be teaching:
Workshop 1: What do you believe? A study in voice and authenticity.
Workshop 2: What is Love, Anger, Hope, Despair?
Workshop 3: When did this happen? Playing with time.
Workshop 4: What did you notice? A ‘real time’ live exercise in mindfulness. This workshop takes place on a boat floating gently along the Grand Canal of Venice!
Workshop 5: They did what? Writing difficult characters.
Then there are the relaxed evening/afternoon seminars, as well as personally-guided inspirational tours. And yes, plenty of free time! As our guide, Janet Simmonds says, the experience, views and scenery are "mozzafiato” breathtaking!
