“I’ve always felt that my ‘style’—the careful projection onto paper of who I think I am—was my only marketable asset, the only possession that might set me apart from other writers.” ---William Zinsser

Fall Retreat Schedule

The Fall Word Lovers Retreat, scheduled for November 4-6, is fully planned.  We're looking forward to some memoir, photography, writing about food and wine, and learning about how to put together a non-fiction book.  There will be lots of time for writing AND we'll be cooking together.  Optional wineries excurions, including dinner at Mon Ami will make this Word Lovers Retreat a special event for you this year.  The complete weekend schedule and reservations to hold your e-mail can be had by sending me an e-mail at claudia.taller@yahoo.com

A Winding Road - Writing

My Photo
My book, "Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries," an Arcadia production, explores the history of island and lakeshore wineries from the mid-1800s through today. I write travel, memoir, profiles, book reviews, local interest articles, and fiction. My writing is always of discovery--whether it's journaling, book reviewing, letter writing, or sharing an experience of life. I have written two novels and am working on a third novel and a memoir. I am passionate about sharing what life has to offer with others. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron woke me up to a sense of possibility--life is too short not be enjoyed by living deeply and well. I created Igniting Possibilities, a conduit for creativity workshops and events, in the hope of guiding others to realize their full potential. The Word Lover's Retreats at Lakeside, Ohio's Chautauqua community, help writers find their voice and direction.
