Sneak away for a creative adventure! Allyson Adams wants to inspire and share techniques with writers to unwind, access their deep voice and simply begin.
Unplug and leave the world behind
Use all your senses
Find the juice
Tell a story
Eat and drink
“Once again you’ve outdone yourself with the Montana Writer’s Retreat. You juggled multiple genres—non-fiction essays, memoir, poetry, fiction—as well as diverse writing levels and project goals. You’re also sensitive to where each writer is at personally and any external pressures in their lives.
With all those factors in mind, while providing unified instruction for the group, you also customize writing exercises for each participant. You allow the group to chat and bond and then gently bring us back to the page. All beautifully balanced, well done.
Oh, and the food—nourishment of the body and brain! I’d need to write another post devoted solely to that!”
My Heartfelt Thanks,
“For one who has always found excuses to put off a dream, I am so glad I finally did not! This retreat was nourishing to my body (artful, creative, body pleasing food); soul (mentoring, encouragement, direction and such deep knowledge shared from a true professional); and heart (Allyson gave us permission to be selfish, make it about “us”, so “we were not there to make friends”,
but WE DID)“
“In my in-between art project times, I’m building bridges between current skills & experience to…where I want to go.
The amount of wisdom, engagement, and encouragement from these amazing writers was priceless. Thank you Allyson for leading and nurturing the way Keep pushing your limits of what you believe is possible for you to accomplish and in growing… both as an artist and an amazing human ”
“This was a true learning experience for me, with so many bottled up ideas just running over my already full glass of wine….apple, grape, red and white!!! Just can’t wait for the next one!!! Thanks Allyson, and so nice to be able to share in a group that was warm, welcoming and easy. Much Love, when outside it was 0 degrees, inside was warm and purring. A motor running on all cylinders.”
