Horse Wisdom and Healing Arts, October 2, 2010

Here is a new way to get some writing done in our area: check out Horse Wisdome and Healing Arts workshops at Little Winds Equine Guided Education. Details, schedules and fees are on the website at

"Horses help us see ourselves in a new light and bring to surface things that have been waiting to emerge while guided poetry, painting and sound healing allow participants to further explore and express the insights and possibilities that arise through the horse-human connection. A day spent immersed in the beauty of the rural Yolo County landscape will surely inspire a sense of connection to nature and community that many of us find missing in our daily lives." --From the Little Winds website

for Women Writers: WritE by the LakE with Jennifer Basye Sander: October 8-10, 2010

Full schedule details and fee information are available at

Fromt the website: "'A room of one’s own,' Virginia Woolf once famously suggested, is what a woman needs to get any writing done. Alas, even if you have a writing room in your house, the rest of your house is still there to interrupt you when you sit down to focus your creativity… Wait! Did you remember to start the dishwasher this morning? Better get up and check. Oh, is that the doorbell? Look, a neighbor has arrived to chat. And did you ever return those phone calls from yesterday? Better do it now before you forget. Finally, a moment arrives when you can get back to your thoughts and really dig in… my, but how the time has flown and now you’ll need to get dinner started.Sound familiar? Instead, why not spend the weekend in Lake Tahoe in a quiet room at 'Write By the Lake' with other women writers, lots of wine, and wonderful food? I’ll be there too – Jennifer Sander, of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Published and some fifty other titles. A former Random House editor and long time book packager and publishing consultant, I’m happy to build a cozy fire and chat all night long about the trials and tribulations of the publishing world."
