“The workshop you gave on Whidbey Island blew me away – I learned so much from you, but also I became inspired and motivated again. Thank you!
I am leaving tomorrow for my first Writer’s Retreat in Albuquerque – they will have a hard press to provide in 3 days what you did in one!”

My week at Il Chiostro in breathtaking Tuscany, learning, writing, sharing, bonding, and touring was a joyous gift that I gave to myself.

Every moment was as delicious as each morsel of Italian food and glass of wine.  Staff Michael and Linda are two of the most gracious hosts I have ever met, while teacher Sheila herself is a gift.  Cheers to all lucky enough to enjoy this unique experience next spring!
