A Room of Her Own Foundation Writer Retreat (August 2013)

In August 2013, I once again climbed up the mesa to the Tumbleweed bunkhouse at Ghost Ranch for A Room of Her Own Foundation's Writer Retreat. . As I expected, it was an exhilarating experience to write among red desert rocks under a brilliant sky. And I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to be in the company of 100 brilliant women writers. I am inspired by their eloquent words and grateful for friendships, both new and renewed. Not even the cafeteria food could dampen my enthusiasm!

I received my awards from the Bay Area Poets Coalition.  Two of my poems won 1st and 2nd prizes in 2 categories.  Of course I’m thrilled!  One of the poems, “Sunrise With Mountain” was born during my week at Ghost Ranch.
