About The Event

“June was white. I see the fields white with daisies, and white with dresses; and tennis courts marked with white. Then there was wind and violent thunder. There was a star riding through clouds one night, and I said to the star, 'Consume me'. That was at midsummer.”

Virginia Woolf, The Waves 

Join me this midsummer for a day of writing, and exploring your own unique voice.
