If any of you are within driving distance of the Charlottesville area, I would like to invite you to an intimate one day poetry retreat at the Mountain Light Retreat outside of Crozet. Limited to 10 poets (whether published or aspiring), Mountain Light is a wonderful place to recharge, reflect, and re-start your journey to the poems you have always wanted to write. This will be our fourth retreat, in what has become a group that meets 2-4 times a year (this is our second year).
Gathering of Poets | Wednesday, June 21, 9:00 am-3:00 pm
On the day of the summer solstice, we will meet to refresh ourselves with nature’s glories, to renew by trying some different forms of poetry, and to deepen our poetic selves through contemplation. Bring a poem of your own (8-12 lines) to share if you wish. Come at 9 to walk the new outdoor labyrinth, and enjoy a meet & greet with refreshments at 9:30. Poet Ray Griffin will facilitate the program beginning at 10 am. Bring lunch, water bottle, and journal, and wear good walking shoes. Reserve your space in this small group by contacting Debbie@mountainlightretreatva.com. The $15 program fee may be paid on arrival.
