Write: A Doe Bay Writer's Workshop
April 19  21, 2013 :: Twenty-five lucky writers will spend an inspiration-filled weekend on Orcas Island immersed in creativity, community and storytelling. Matthew Logelin, New York Times bestseller of Two Kisses for Maddy, Stephanie Walker, playwright and author of Love in the Time of Foreclosure and Daniel Blue, lead singer and songwriter of Seattle's own Motopony, will lead writers through memoir, poetry, lyrical and narrative writing. Photographer Jesse Michener and San Juan Island poet/writer Jennifer Furber will facilitate the weekend. Participants will be housed at Doe Bay's Retreat House and Harbor House, located on over thirty-eight acres of pristine waterfront property on Orcas Island. In a rustic, down-to-earth environment, participants will explore storytelling and workshop current pieces of writing through guided free writes and solo time to soak in the beauty that is Doe Bay.  With a focus on and attention to craft of the written word, the weekend will include an intimate dinner at Doe Bay Cafe and a fire-side open mic for the performance, celebration and readings of works.  The weekend will conclude with a breakfast and closing activity on Sunday morning.

The cost is $250 per person and includes food, non-alcoholic beverages and dinner at the Cafe on Saturday night as well as all workshop materials. Thursday night accommodation available at no extra fee. Extended stay available. Registration begins January 25.

The proceeds of this workshop will benefit the Liz Logelin Foundation (http://thelizlogelinfoundation.org/).
