Writing Seminars and Retreats

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
                                                                      Maya Angelou


Are you thinking about writing your story? Do you start writing then get stuck? Do you feel you could use some support? Has your partner been nagging you to write that book already but you just don't know where to start? Whether in an on-line teleseminar or webinar, or at a destination writing retreat vacation, your time has come to write!

It's time to tell your story. OUR story! Don't let our history get lost! Our lives and our words are important to share. Our young LGBT friends and family need to know on whose shoulders they stand, and the straight world needs to know that they didn't make history without us.

If a nation loses its storytellers, it loses its childhood.

                                                                    Peter Handkerule

Tele-SeminarsOn-line writing seminars and writing retreats help provide the tools you need to initiate or augment your writing.

Our seminars and retreats are taught by published, working writers who are also experienced teachers. We explore new directions, provide a community of like-minded folks, and offer inspiration to help start your writing and to keep you going.

You bring the desire and we'll help with the inspiration!

On-Line Webinars

Book Fair60-minute webinar provides important and helpful information about writing, gives assignments for you to actually begin your writing process, guides you through the development of your book, and connects you with other folks like yourself.

Webinars offer the opportunity for you to create your story in the privacy of your own home but in the virtual company of others like yourself. The nurturing atmosphere allows your creativity to flow, no matter how intimidated you may feel.

On-line writing workshops open up a world of opportunity for writers at every stage. Whether you are just getting started or have been writing for years, the flexibility of an online workshop provides the inspiration to keep writing and challenging yourself to achieve the next stage in your writing career.

The cost is a very affordable $29.

Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you;
figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer.

Destination Writing Retreats

Our destination writing retreats offer opportunities to be in the company of like-minded people, have in-person access to individual and group support, and get to know other writers whose stories may be similar to your own. Whether you're thinking about starting your book or in the middle of one, this retreat is for you! Our retreats free you from your daily distractions in beautiful and tranquil locations (but where you can have some fun, too!). We select locations where you will feel relaxed and connected to a larger creative presence. Your renewed excitement and productivity from the retreat will move you forward with your writing when you return home.

No matter where you are with your writing – whether just beginning, stuck, or continuing the work you started – you'll receive guidance and support in the company of people similar to yourself.

How it works
The destination retreats are three days. There are five workshop sessions, writing assignments with ample time to complete them, with discussion and feedback in small groups and with the large group. But primarily, you have time to think and to write in a beautiful space without interruptions. Bring your laptop and/or your notebook and a willingness to write. That's it! 

Retreats are limited to 30 people. The cost is $400 for the  retreat. Most meals and a reception are included in the cost. Travel costs and arrangements are are not included.

Do you realize that all great literature is all about what a bummer it is
to be a human being? Isn't it such a relief to have somebody say that?
