Motherhood & Words Retreat at Madeline Island School of the Arts
June 17 – 21, 2013
Located in Northern Wisconsin in the Chequamegon Bay
All mothers have stories to tell. Whether we tell these stories is another question. Join Kate Hopper, the author of Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers and learn how writing about the dark and the humorous sides of motherhood can combat the myths still perpetuated in our society.
In this workshop, you will spend time discussing how to ground your writing in sensory details, how to craft the people in your life as three-dimensional characters on the page, and how to fit writing into your busy life.
Class time will include lecture, discussion, writing exercises and optional sharing of your work in a supportive community of writers. Kate will be providing individual feedback for each student. Come prepared to immerse yourself in your writing life, with other mothers who write.
There is still space available! Sign up now by going to the Madeline Island School of the Arts website.
