Are you a writer or photographer? What about spending a week on my fishcamp island with me and a handful of other writers-artists-photographers?
|My studio, where we'll have our workshops.|
|You can don raingear and join us in catching fish in the skiff!|
The special week: August 31 - September 7, 2013.
What will we do, we hungry thirsters?
Mornings will be spent in workshops with intensive and supportive guidance from Gina Ochsner (http://www.ginaochsner.com/) and myself, both award-winning writers and veteran teachers. (Fiction writers will meet with Gina. Creative Nonfiction writers will meet with Leslie, with some workshops combined.) Photographers will be instructed by a (fantastic) professional photographer who lives in Kodiak, Carol Scott. (Bonus! Carol will join us on many of our outings giving hands-on photography advice for all!)
|How we get there---float plane or bush plane from Kodiak.|
Afternoons will feature optional activities: whale watching, wildlife viewing, mountain and beach hiking. Each evening---are ready?---we will prepare our own fresh seafood dinner, followed by (yes, dishes) then readings, music, and special events both literary and Alaskan. BUT---you can "retreat" from any of these activities as you choose and simply hole up and write to your soul's content.

|Fin whales--a constant presence around the island.|
It's wilderness, make no mistake, but it's not too heathen or savage. Heated cabins, double occupancy. But it IS a wilderness island! We use an OUTHOUSE and BANYA. The banya is a Russian style wood-fired steambath in a separate building.

I will let the work of God's hands speak the last word ..
