In this collaborative workshop, you’ll explore ways to strengthen your writing, connect with other writers, and shake ideas from your imaginative tree. Come ready to work hard, have fun, and learn how to make your imagination surprise you even more than it already does.

This Imaginative Storm took place in Taos at the Old Taos Guesthouse. We had a wonderful collection of writers which included a screenwriter with an academy award nomination, an environmental activist, two youth poets from the local high school, a novelist, a local businessman, the head librarian of the International School in Saudi Arabia, a painter, and the guy in the hat who later told me there were as many international spies living in Taos as there were writers. Hard to believe isn't it?
