“Using the Power of Landscape to Liberate Your Narrative Voice,” a writing retreat by Page Lambert held on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, is set for Aug. 8-10. The fee is $500 for GCA members; $525 for non-members.
Here’s a description from Page’s web site:
Do places tell us who we are? How does an exploration of outer landscape help in the exploration of inner landscape? How do we learn the language of the land? Can we learn to write our stories by learning the stories of the land? These questions, and more, will be explored during this 3-day writing retreat at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, facilitated by author Page Lambert in partnership with the Grand Canyon Field Institute.
Secluded scenic overlooks will provide the backdrop for this unique event. Inspiration for writing facilitation will be drawn from various authors, including poets Mary Oliver and Pablo Neruda, and books such as Wisdom Sits in Places, The Spell of the Sensuous, Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Us, and Creating Fiction from Experience. Looking at excerpts from Major John Wesley Powell’s journals of 1869, and the ancient place-names used by the Apache, we will explore the concepts of “time” and “event” as they relate to writing.
