Chris Woodside on Lafayette Mountain, White Mountains, New Hampshire

I, Chris Woodside, will lead a three-day writing workshop on the shores of incredible Squam Lake next June. Mark your calendars and join me on June 12, 13, and 14 at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps in Holderness, New Hampshire. Details coming. Lodging and good food in a dining hall included in a special rate.

We writers think we have to sit like monks to work. We spend hours in a seat holding back the wild beast, followed by a few minutes, perhaps, going outdoors, where we feel truly alive. At this workshop, we will flip around this thinking.

We will draft new work from our encounters with the natural world of the Squam Range and Squam Lake. I will help you stop thinking about your goals or destinations, turn off the noise, and let new words in. I will teach you why the American ideal of comfort works against creativity.

Save the dates and spread the word.
