Creative Journeys - Writing Workshops for Women
Workshop & Presentation - Summer 2019

August 25
Gift From the Sea
A Creative Journeys women’s writing retreat with Gail Frank

In her book, Gift From the Sea, Anne Morrow Lindbergh tells us “Patience, patience, patience is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith.”

Drawing from Lindbergh’s book, and using short journal prompts, we will explore themes of creativity, personal space, inner peace and finding balance and harmony in our lives.

This one-day workshop is for all levels of writers including beginners. No writing experience is needed. If you want to make a difference in your own life or in the world, consider exploring the transformative power of words writing what you alone can say in your own powerful voice. Whether you’re in need of inspiration and renewal or simply want to undo the silence you’ve fostered most of your life, now is the time to begin.

To register or for more information, call Gail at 503-801-1238. or contact her at Early enrollment is advised as seating is limited. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a space. Participants should bring a journal or notebook and pens, a sack lunch or cash to order out.

A former columnist for the North Coast Citizen under the name of Gail Balden, Frank is a writer, educator and activist. After living 25 years on the Oregon Coast, she now divides her time between the Oregon Coast and Arizona where she lives 40 miles from the Mexico/U.S. border. She is a member of the Green Valley-Sahuarita Samaritans and currently writes about immigration and border issues.
