The Fourth Annual February Writing Retreat (this year in Cambria) was the most terrific of all. Out of respect for the Cambria 6, some of whom are Facebook-averse writers, here they are, backs to me, watching the sun go down. Bonded by stories and laughter and tears, great meals, writing sessions, shopping! and a final caper that sent us all home with a huge grin. Thank you, my writers. You know who you are. What a glorious time we had together.
What a gorgeous day to announce this wonderful news. Amy Ferris, writer extraordinaire, author, editor, screenwriter, memoirist is coming to LA in June to do a one-day Writing HerShop with Jody Kobak Feagan and Katie Rountree. I went to one of Amy’s HerShops last year and her extraordinary gifts deepened and changed my writing. If you have a story to tell (don’t we all) run, don’t walk to be with Amy Ferris. She is a rare teacher. And…. I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be teaching a HerShop in June myself – Screenwriting RX – for aspiring screenwriters who want to work on their scripts or want to adapt their books for TV/film. Please see the website for more info. NOTE: These will fill up quickly.
One of the finest writers I know, Elaine Mansfield, will be giving a reading in SF on July 25. She is amazing. Run, don’t walk. Wish I were going to be there. Go, Elaine, go.

Don’t miss two very special events with the talented Linda Schreyer at the Westport Library and Nanuet Library!
Linda Schreyer, co-author with Jo-Ann Lautman of Tears and Tequila, discusses this story of love, loss, friendship, courage and, most of all, renewal. It tells of the healing that happens when you become part of a community in which everybody is missing someone. This novel about love, loss and renewal will make you laugh, cry and invest in the lives portrayed.
“With compassion and a light hand which only true understanding can provide, the authors impart important life lessons on how to cope with grief and find a new path to happiness.”—Edie Lutnick Co-Founder and President, The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund
