Writing Retreat Coming…: #sol15 27/31

The Hudson Valley Writing Project is sponsoring a writing retreat tomorrow and Sunday( sleep over) and I’m going.

Yes, I’m leaving Tuvia to his own devices for 24 hours but he seems to be good about it.  That’s now, though before the reality sets


I’m sure we’ll be talking often.

I’m charging up my camera batteries for the experience and getting excited about capturing the experience and writing…

writing and sharing with a group of amazing HVWP teacher/writers, some new to me, many well known over years of working


I can’t wait to post the group shots of happy teachers writing and sharing and hanging out and what perfect timing…

I will have so much to write about for our last slices.

Here’s a taste of things coming…


Two of our newest TCs, Patty Curry and Jackie Hesse, have organized a writing retreat,
