Waterside Writing Workshops

Waterside Writing Workshops

People love the water.

Waterside Writing Workshops are  designed to improve the writing skills of non-professional writers.  

Each is inspired by the Chesapeake Bay. 

Each has writing prompts, storytelling, and fellowship. 

And, mostly time for reflection. 
Local historians, photographers, writers, and artisans will join us.

No writing experience required.  Just a creative spirit. 

It’s more than just water.
It’s a new way to see yourself.

about gwen

Come with me to see and experience the Chesapeake in a new and different way. 

I’m a storyteller at heart, but I’m also a writer, life coach, attorney (retired), patient advocate, docent for the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park  and skipjack Wilma Lee, and resident of Eastport and Cambridge.

I write a monthly column, “Inspired by the Chesapeake” for SpinSheet magazine, study guides for the American Sailing Association, and coordinate writing events with nautical themes to experience what it means to
move with the water.

Waterside Writing Workshops combine maritime history, iconic imagery, photography, and storytelling from locals who work the water.  

No writing experience is needed, just a creative spirit.

Come join us!
