Autumn Weekend and One Day Intensives
Occasionally I offer One Day and Weekend Writing Intensives on a variety of themes, to help jumpstart, inspire, and deepen writing.
“Marlene invites us to writing spaces where heart and soul are celebrated, private safe havens where gifts of self insight regularly occur. Her knowledge and wisdom gently nudge us to explore our own voices. Since I retired, she has been one of my guiding stars. Thank you Marlene for another gracious and generous weekend. I feel energized, as if I can now move forward with my writing.” (JC)
