Writing with Ghosts: The Power of Haunted Writing

Very excited announce registration is open for Writing with Ghosts. Kyo Maclear and I are facilitating a writing retreat at Hollyhock on Cortes Island this fall–October 1 – 6, 2023

What haunts you? What returns and what persists? It may be the memory of a vivid sensation, a deep regret, an ancestral rumor, a former self… It needn’t be unwanted. What ghosts are not done with you?

The idea behind this retreat is to write from what feels vital and lingering—obsessions, images, questions, ideas—from what’s felt in the spine.

Scholarships are available!
