A New Venture

The fact that I made a pledge to post here every week and then did not post for a year is probably eveything you need to know about my oppositional nature.

All that aside, I’m doing a new thing, and I’m really excited about it.


My friend Tanya Miller and I have teamed up to offer writing retreat/workshops here in beautiful Park Rapids, MN  We are offering  a 5-day  poetry retreat June 26-30 with visiting writer Heid E. Erdrich and a 5-day memoir writing retreat with visiting writer Kao Kalia Yang.

Check out the details at northbeachwritersretreat.com!

Here’s a taste:

Get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life to unwind and reflect at the North Beach Writers’ Retreat. This generative workshop provides the time and space to push “pause” on the daily responsibilities of life and give yourself the mental space to write. Enjoy writers’ craft talks, writing prompts, fellowship with other writers, feedback, and time for quiet reflection and writing.

Nestled in the heart of the Park Rapids lakes area, the North Beach Writers’ Retreat is located on the property of the North Beach Resort. During free time, attendees have access to the entire resort, which includes a sandy swimming beach on beautiful Potato Lake, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, volleyball nets, canoes, and kayaks.

Please take a look, and we hope that you will apply!

  1. Hi LouAnn, I see you have me in your list of those who pledged to post every week in 2018. I’m so glad it’s 2019 so I can also be freed of that failed attempt. In the meantime, I have been a writing fool. I look forward to reading your poetry and working with you!
