You really can finish (or start) that novel, memoir, short story, or poem you’ve been dying to write. Bring your writing dreams to life at this creative gathering in a beautiful setting in the woods on Bernardsville mountain. You’ll be given inspirational writing prompts and advice, distraction-free time to write, an opportunity to share your work, and a healthy, delicious lunch!



  • writing & publishing advice
  • helpful handouts
  • writing prompts & practice writing sessions
  • constructive feedback on your work

Fee for the full day, including all activities, handouts, snacks, beverages, lunch, and FREE one-year digital subscription to Tiferet (worth $18.95), is $125.

Optional add-on: feedback for up to 5 pages of writing (submitted in advance); includes notes and private 15-minute meeting, is $30.

Past attendee Priscilla Orr writes, “I loved the workshop I took with Donna. I was a little apprehensive at first. But within minutes, I was comfortable. Donna and her home were warm and welcoming. Her expertise and organization had us writing, exploring and sharing in no time. Time flew, but I went home with a notebook of work having made connections in my work I hadn’t imagined possible. And I also had made some new writer friends. I was so engaged in the process that it wasn’t until the end of the day that I realized how much I had learned, and how much I had to take home with me. I highly recommend Donna’s workshop. You’ll be inspired.”
