I’ve been teaching at “the ranch” for around a decade. Usually I teach cooking, but this year I’ll spend the week teaching writing at Rancho La Puerta.
This year, I’ll be back at the ranch September 23rd to 30th to teach writing. I’ll be doing four classes, starting with one focusing on the wonderful exercise, “The Six-Word Memoir.” After that, the classes will focus on writing scenes, developing voice and more.
Rancho La Puerta is a very special place not just to me, but many people who have been finding it a place of solace and comfort for decades. Rancho La Puerta been named the top wellness spa year-after-year by Conde Nast Traveler and other publications, and invariably wins the “Best Spa/Resort for the Solo Traveler.” It focuses on wellness via exercise and taking in the great outdoors, healthy food and creating a positive mindset. I feel like this review from Trip Savvy captures the experience quite well.
If you decide you can’t swing a whole week, you can opt for a Saturday to Wednesday trip and you’ll catch most of my workshops for writing at Rancho La Puerta. Regardless of how long you stay, if you decide to join me at ranch that week, let me know! Can’t make it in 2023? I’ll have dates for 2024 in October.
