Here’s what participants have been saying:

“I really thank you for offering Ideas That Move (October 2012, Bretton Woods, NH). It was enormously powerful, meaningful, fun, bright, joyous, and motivating all at once. Ideas That Move contains multitudes.”

-Lara Therrien, Facing History and Ourselves

“Ideas that Move (April 2012, Hartland, VT) exceeded expectations. The facilitators were terrific, and the results for each person were extraordinary. This was one of the best workshops I have ever attended bar none. In two days, I accomplished more than I ever expected. I jumpstarted a project I had been wanting to get to for some time and came home with an action plan for moving my work forward. The group was passionate, creative, and super fun. I couldn’t think of a better way to have spent a weekend, or spent my time recharging my writing batteries.”

-Martha Thayer, Personal Trainer and Journalist

“I attribute the success of the Ideas That Move (April 2012, Hartland, VT) retreat to its facilitators. They made everyone feel welcome and threw in a great deal of fun… I’ve gained confidence and learned more about myself as a writer. Nearly a week after returning home, I am still inspired by the women I spent the weekend with. I would happily encourage any writer, any woman, to attend the next retreat. If you want to be inspired, sign up.”
