Writing in the Dark is and annual one day writing retreat that will takes place on the second Saturday of February from 9 am to 4 pm. It is a wonderful day of focusing on writing techniques and each year we invite an author in a different genre to share their techniques and skills with the interior writing community. Registration happens each year throughout December, January and early February.
You are invited to spend a day looking at the world differently through your writing with Homer author Erin Hollowell. Generate new work, gather ideas, and consider new projects. Feel free to bring work in progress (poetry or prose) that you’d like to look at with new eyes.
Standing in the Sky
Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth. We walk through it, yell into it, rake leaves, wash the dog, and drive cars in it. We breathe it deep within us. With every breath, we inhale millions of molecules of sky, heat them briefly, and then exhale them back into the world.- Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses
