    Greg & Ursula, thank you so much for today's workshop. I am so grateful for your work and this community. I hope it is the safe place I need to begin doing the work of writing a novel! It was so nice to meet others who are interested!

    So distressed! Had pseudo-emergency with family, couldn't leave Charlottesville til 1pm; no good for a two hour session starting at 1. Next month without fail. My apologies to planners!

      Gail, we'll be here every 1st and 3rd Saturday. There will be plenty of chances to catch up. Take care of yourself and we'll keep you in our thoughts until next time. All my best - Greg

    I am so excited to attend this introductory session. This could be just the jump start I've been needing.
    I recently experienced a job change that gives me a great deal of flexibility and more free time. So the timing is perfect for me to attend this event. Looking forward to meeting fellow storytellers!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
