on the McKenzie River
Facilitated by Debra Gwartney
December 8 and 9, 2012
We’ve recently finished a cozy cottage in the woods, a perfect setting for a small group of writers to come together for two full days of concentration on memoir writing. The weekend will include some discussion of published models and craft issues, though the primary focus will be on the hour-long workshops of individual manuscripts. This intensive is designed for those working on a book length memoir or individual memoir/essay pieces, and is limited to six participants who will each submit (by email to the group) up to fifty pages of text (deadline for that submission is November 15, to give everyone opportunity to read) for the workshop.
Cost: $200 (plus the cost of printing the other participants’ workshop pieces)
Included in this cost are morning coffee/snacks, lunch, and an afternoon snack. A packet of readings will also be provided.
If you’re interested in staying overnight on the river, the wonderful Heaven’s Gate cabins are less than ½ mile from our house. 541 822 3214
