February 24, 2015. Registration opens for Summer Fishtrap: A Gathering of Writers, a week of writing workshops, panel discussions, and evening readings for aspiring and established writers. Includes time to relax, write, hike, and fish. The 2015 gathering, Hidden from History: Stories We Haven’t Heard, Stories We Haven’t Told, features keynote speaker Timothy Egan and closing speaker Winona LaDuke. Page Lambert will be presenting the week-long workshop, “Deep Mapping the Narrative of Our Lives.”
“The secrets of a village can be read in the tombstones. Entire cultures keep secrets. Midwives sometimes bury the truth. Mothers keep secrets, and fathers, and the nice teacher from third grade. Even the dog doesn’t tell where he buries his bones. We all have secrets, and hidden treasures—bones that give structure to our life story, waiting to be fleshed out, imbued with heart.”
July 6-12th, 2015, Wallowa Lake and Retreat Center, Oregon.
