with Kate Gray


Eleanor Roosevelt wrote, “You gain…courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” Writing is a brave act, and when you create characters who look fear in the face and triumph, you and your readers rise. In this generative and reflective workshop, you’ll meditate, respond to prompts, and laugh. You’ll receive specific attention to what is shining brightly in your writing through the Gateless Method. You’ll honor your tender and fierce heart in your stories and poems. No experience necessary.


Kate Gray's passion stems from teaching, leading salons, and volunteering. She is the author of two poetry chapbooks, two full-length poetry collections, and one novel which stares at bullying without blinking. In her current novel-in-progress, Kate narrates, in Sylvia Plath’s voice, what led to The Bell Jar and Plath’s suicide attempt in 1953. Kate and her partner live in a pine and oak forest in the mid-Columbia River Gorge with an impetuous, city dog.
