July 25 to 27, 2013
Mendocino Coast Writers Conference
About 150 miles north of San Francisco Bay, the Mendocino Coast, with wildflower-covered bluffs and crashing surf, is a haven for writers and artists. Victorian villages dot the coastline, and in the moments between writing, opportunities abound for hiking, fishing, canoeing, diving, shopping, and excellent dining. The average temperature in late July is from 49 to 64 degrees F. No rain is expected, but it can be windy and the fog may roll in.
Workshops, lectures, readings, and meals take place on the Mendocino Campus of College of the Redwoods, located near the water
Judith will offer a three- day memoir workshop, a craft session, and a reading. Click here.

Mountain Writers Workshop Series
"Poems: All Shapes and Sizes"
Friends Meeting House, 4312 SE Stark, Portland, OR
This poetry workshop held over three Saturdays, will allow you time to experiment with new poems between meetings. All poems have a form, and the traditional ones have endured for good reasons: they may well be a starting point from which you can launch your own versions. It’s hard to imagine a painter or musician, say, who hasn’t studied the basic elements of his or her chosen art; poets, too, need an understanding of our inheritance as well as an innovative ability to find the lines and stanzas that will best serve the subject in this time. We’ll do our best to combine the tried and true with the unique and modern.
Cost is $225. (three four-hour sessions)
Enrollment, maximum 15
To register, send name, address, phone number and email address, with workshop fee or a non-refundable deposit of $25 to secure a space. Questions or registrations to: pdxmws@mountainwriters.org, or 503 232 4517 for messages.
