“I’ve always felt that my ‘style’—the careful projection onto paper of who I think I am—was my only marketable asset, the only possession that might set me apart from other writers.” ---William Zinsser

Fall 2011 Word Lover's Retreat


A Word Lovers Food and Wine Weekend, November 4-6 at the Idlewyld Bed and Breakfast in historic Lakeside, Ohio, is a food and wine experience.  This is a weekend of winery tours and tastings and creating beautiful food together.  Friday evening begins with writing prompts, and Saturday sessions include a session on writing a non-fiction book (based on Claudia’s experience of writing her book Ohio’s Lake Erie Wineries) and establishing immediacy through description.  How would you describe in words the taste of chocolate mousse or Firelands Winery’s Pinot Grigio?  Ample time for writing will be woven into the weekend.  The cost is $110 for the weekend (which includes three meals) plus the cost of a room at the Idlewyld.  Hold you spot with a $50 deposit and your desired room choice.   The deposit should be sent to Claudia Taller, Igniting Possibilities, 26408 Chapel Hill Drive, North Olmsted, Ohio 44070.

A Winding Road - Writing

My photo
My book, "Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries," an Arcadia production, explores the history of island and lakeshore wineries from the mid-1800s through today. I write travel, memoir, profiles, book reviews, local interest articles, and fiction. My writing is always of discovery--whether it's journaling, book reviewing, letter writing, or sharing an experience of life. I have written two novels and am working on a third novel and a memoir. I am passionate about sharing what life has to offer with others. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron woke me up to a sense of possibility--life is too short not be enjoyed by living deeply and well. I created Igniting Possibilities, a conduit for creativity workshops and events, in the hope of guiding others to realize their full potential. The Word Lover's Retreats at Lakeside, Ohio's Chautauqua community, help writers find their voice and direction.
