Welcome to Ignite Your Creativity: a Workshop for Writers
Come in! Join me in the creative atmosphere of Santa Fe, New Mexico, for a fall weekend writing workshop meant to infuse your writing with new passion. Whether you’re a blogger, an essayist or a corporate writer, this workshop will help you look at your subject in a new way and rekindle your creativity.
The beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains are the backdrop to this fun, supportive and interactive writing weekend that will include idea-generating walks in the crisp autumn air in an environment that’s been a creative catalyst for countless artists and writers. Our workshop space is a block from Canyon Road and we’ll breathe in the inspiration of other creative souls, including the late Georgia O’Keefe, whose spirit infuses our workshop space.
Who should come: Bloggers, writers of all kinds. Workshop limited to 5 writers. (This is not a workshop for first-time writers.)

I’m a first person essayist who has been publishing (and getting paid for it) since I was 16 years old. In college I was a journalism major and my 30-year career was in corporate communications. Writing is my passion and I’ve taught it at the college level and to corporate writers. I’ve even done a creativity workshop for writers who produce the web content for shopping channel HSN. Not only do I love to write but I love to coach other writers. You can expect our workshop atmosphere to be supportive and encouraging.
