“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

Word Lovers Food and Wine Weekend

Join Igniting Possibilities for a weekend of tasting wine and making food together.  We'll start with time to write, and in the afternoon, we'll migrate to Hermes Winery for a tasting prior to making pizzas in the Idlewyld's kitchen. On Saturday, learn how to write about food and wine and hear Claudia Taller's tales of writing a book about Ohio's Lake Erie wineries. We'll take a tour, taste some wine, and feast at the seafood buffet at Mon Ami Winery. Write all weekend long, and share your work on Sunday morning. Weekend rates include Hermes tasting, two breakfasts, Friday dinner, and Saturday Mon Ami Experience. Prices range from $200/weekend for a shared room to $330/weekend for a private room. Contact Claudia Taller to reserve your space.

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.
