Blog home of Cleveland-area poet and publisher John Burroughs
Hi John--Thanks for posting my Eastside Writers Woprkshop. Any chance you might say something about my Retreat? : Alynn Mahle, BA, MA, memoirist and English instructor, from Cleveland, Ohio, teaches both experienced writers and non-writers foolproof ways to turn life stories into meaningful memoir. Join us for productive ways to record family memories at Bear Creek Farm Bed and Breakfast, 5504 State Road, Kingsville, Ohio 44048. One-hundred-acre property near wine and covered-bridge country.Mahle encourages everyone to record family stories; to pass on values, customs and events, is our most important legacy. She says, “Your life is unlike anyone else's; no one has interacted with the same people, in the same ways you have. It is a fingerprint, a unique set of swirling experiences, owned by you.” Keynote Speaker Deanna R Adams is an award-winning author. Her first book was Rock ’n’ Roll and the Cleveland Connection (Kent State University Press, 2002). She recently published the memoir collection Confessions of a Not-So-Good Catholic Girl.
