Wild Women Writers of Nimrod Hall


The People

I spent last week with a wonderful group of writers. Here we are at the conclusion of Week One. (I’m on the far left.)

This is Sheri Reynolds, writer-in-residence for the Week One workshop at Nimrod Hall. She’s a New York Times bestselling author AND a great workshop leader. The latter isn’t surprising, as she teaches creative writing at Old Dominion University, where she holds the Morgan Chair of Southern Literature. She’s as funny as she is accomplished. I’m fortunate to have had this workshop with her!

Now to begin Week Two.

This is a note card by Richmond’s own Susannah Raine-Haddad–Perfect for the arrival day of Nimrod Writer Women, Week Two.

Actually, it’s true only in spirit. In the flesh we are laden with laptops, works in progress, books, wine, snacks, comfy clothes and anything else deemed necessary for a productive week! (Remember my first post?)

Here’s to another week of wine, women and words.

Nimrod Hall, established in 1783, has been providing summer respite from everyday stress since 1906. It has been operating as an artist and writer colony for over 25 years. The Nimrod Hall Summer Arts Program is a non-competitive, inspirational environment for artists to create without the distractions of everyday life. The 2015 Writers’ Workshop writers-in-residence are Sheri Reynolds, Cathryn Hankla, and Charlotte G. Morgan
