“Joanne has an astonishing ability to establish a cocoon of safety for creativity and guidance to find and tell your truth. Plus, the retreat was a lot of fun! I cannot recommend her and the Ghost Ranch experience highly enough. “

Our 2020 workshop at the spectacular Ghost Ranch — a 21,000-acre renowned retreat center just north of Santa Fe, where Georgia O’Keeffe lived and painted — was wonderful! For 5 days, a diverse group of 11wrote together, fostered a community of support, took creative risks and built trust in our unique writing voices, broke bread together, and absorbed the mystic beauty of Ghost Ranch.

Join me and other
writerly companions in one of my ONLINE workshops:
6-week-long workshops for anyone who wishes to write
Saturday day-longs for anyone who wishes to write
Workshops for cancer survivors, specifically using writing as a way of healing
In all workshops, we write with others in a small group. Together we foster a safe and supportive community enabling participants to write freely and go deep: writing in response to suggested prompts, building trust among the group and in our unique voices, receiving feedback on what’s strong in our first-draft writing. If requested, we also make time for manuscript review with balanced feedback.
I use the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method in all workshops. AWA is a network of affiliates who are leading writing workshops throughout the United States and in nine countries worldwide. Writers who have used the AWA method have published major works and won top awards in the U.S., Canada, and Ireland.
All are welcome in my workshops: beginning writers, those beginning again, and experienced writers will generate new material here. Workshops meet in my comfortable home less than a mile from the Santa Fe Plaza. Healthy snacks are always provided.
