2013 WORD LOVERS WRITING WEEKEND
IDLEWYLD BED & BREAKFAST AT LAKESIDE
Friday, May 31, through Sunday, June 2, 2013
Igniting Possibilities announces the 2013 Word Lovers Weekend at the Idlewyld Bed and Breakfast in Lakeside. Our theme is Writing Your Best Words.
Before you can begin to Write Your Best Words, you will want to Choose Your Best Projects. We’ll start the formal programming on Friday night as we explore how to choose what it is you want to do with your writing time.
Our Writers-in-Residence are novelist Robin Yocum, freelance writer Mary Mihaly, and poet/dancer Mary Bodnar, who will each lead workshops on Saturday (descriptions are on the next page). Novelist Les Roberts, a Word Lovers favorite, will be available for critique sessions on Saturday. Time to write is penciled in at Saturday intervals, Friday arrival, and after the Gathering on Sunday.

Lakeside is a great place for walking, watching sunsets, seeing a starlit night sky, and relaxing. Stress falls away the minute you enter Lakeside, which provides the scene and background against which we will create, rejuvenate, and connect with our writing, our muse, and each other. Make Lakeside your weekend escape to get some work done in the company of other writers. Find your “tribe.”
