Write with me in beautiful Homer, AK!


FRIENDS: THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL. Write me if you’d like to be notified if there is a second one!

I’m hosting a two-day storytelling retreat this summer in Homer on beautiful Yukon Island, July 24 -26. This retreat is an intimate, no-homework, no-pressure opportunity to generate material and improve storytelling and listening skills in a positive environment. The workshop, especially suited for people who write for their jobs, will center on personal storytelling while relying on techniques that have broad applications in writing and reporting work. You will leave with tools that help you write more fluidly, listen more effectively and tap into your innate ability to organize and tell interesting stories that connect with readers.

There are 10 workshop slots available.  The cost for two days writing on the island is $425, which includes lodging and food. Transportation by water taxi is an additional $65. I can offer up to five discounted slots for working, early-career journalists. Alaska Press Club members get $25 off.

Please email me by May 15 if you’re interested in participating: juliaeomalley@gmail.com. You must pay in full to reserve your slot (or make other arrangements). Paypal preferred. First come, first served. I promise you’ll have a great time. 🙂
