Do you love to write but don’t find the time for it? Have you started a memoir and find it is more about the facts of your life and less about the soul of your life, the things that really matter? Join the instructor on a journey into writing practice. We will leave the inner critic at the door and keep our hands moving across the pages of our notebooks.

Writing in a supportive environment, structured by timed writing and prompts to stir the imagination, writers are often amazed to see what emerges onto the page.

Our weekend together will include teaching, reading, small group and individual work, and time to quiet the mind with periods of silence and meditation. You will take away from this retreat methods on how to continue your writing practice long after the weekend is over.

Barbara O’Neil, MEd is a life-long teacher and writer. She leads writing groups for students in the Boston area and a yearly writing retreat in Taos, New Mexico. She finds writing to be a powerful vehicle for self-expression and creativity and is passionate about guiding others on their path as writers.

In 2017, Barbara was awarded a writing residency at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico.
