We invite writers to Ojai—and on adventurous trips abroad—for writing workshops offered by some of the best writing teachers on the planet!


UPCOMING WORKSHOP – February 7 & 8, 2015:


“Mythic Writing: Exploring Your Personal Story”

with Dr. Dennis Patrick Slattery – $297

This 2-day workshop guides writers on a pilgrimage into the deepest layers of their personal myth

Using meditative writing exercises found in Slattery’s book “Riting Myth, Mythic Writing: Plotting Your Personal Story,” writers will mine gems from personal narratives and deepen into memoir writing.

Deeply influenced by the work of C. G. Jung, James Hillman and Joseph Campbell, Slattery appeals to writers, including those who passionately include a great deal of their own personal stories in their fiction and nonfiction. From the depths of the unconscious, writers can discover a ritual way of writing – Slattery calls riting – and find the truest stories of their lives.

Slattery is a 21-year core faculty in the Mythological Studies Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, has taught for 43 years and is the author of 22 books.

Cost is $297 – includes lunch and Slattery’s book. (To be used in the workshop and to help you explore further your personal myth with over 80 meditative writing exercises in nine chapters.)


DATE: Saturday, February 7th 9am-4pm and Sunday, February 8th 9am-1pm. (Includes Lunch on Saturday.) LIMITED SEATING!
