Greetings all,

I'll be your writing instructor for the CUCF Cancer Chronicles Writing Retreat at the Witte Museum this weekend. I look forward to meeting you, hearing your stories, and using my expertise to inspire and prompt your writing. I have thirty years of experience as a writer and writing instructor, and I'm comfortable leading this writing retreat to include all, from experienced writers to non-writers. This weekend should be a time for sharing, reflection, writing, and community. All you need to do is show up, and the rest will fall into place! That said, here are a few guideposts as you look forward to the weekend:

Witte Museum's Twohig House: Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7th, 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

* You should arrive via the welcome desk at the Witte, and you'll be directed to our private meeting space

* Our days will be a mix of group work and writing instruction in the classroom, plus time for your private       writing with full access to the beautiful grounds of the Witte

* We will provide a sack lunch Saturday and Sunday. Please message me if you have any dietary restrictions

* We will provide a small notebook and pencil

* The following Sunday will be a writer's showcase at the Witte Museum. Please invite your friends and family  to hear your story. Our artistic director Carla Sankey will bring musicians who will perform a song related to   your story

Witte Museum's Memorial Auditorium: Saturday, May 13th, 2:00pm – 3:00pm

Feel free to call or text me with any questions,
