Writing Retreats

Summer Greenfire Writing Retreat (for Greenfire Creative Coaching Clients)

4-day/5-night retreat

This annual, women-only retreat is by invitation only. For information, please contact Judy.

I really got a lot out of the (coaching client) workshop, not just in terms of technique, but also because it challenged me, as a person and as a writer, and made me think about myself and where I am. The exercises you had us do often seemed tailor made for us as a group and as individuals. As all of us agreed (we did talk about it), you are a damn good teacher.
