The Water Moves Me

Writing Workshops

People love the water.

The Water Moves Me is a series of writing and creative workshops for personal development drawing inspiration from the Chesapeake Bay.

Each workshop has a nautical theme — anchor, compass, tethered, navigate –for insights and life lessons. 

There will be writing prompts, storytelling, wine and fellowship.  Mostly, time for reflection. 
Maritime historians, local artisans, storytellers, and writers will be our guides.

No writing experience required.  Just a creative spirit. 

It’s more than just water.
It’s a new way to see yourself.

about gwen

My vision for The Water Moves Me is to enable people to see and experience the Chesapeake in a new and different way. 

I’m a storyteller at heart, but I’m also a writer, life coach, attorney (retired), patient advocate, docent for the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park and resident of Eastport.

I write for SpinSheet and coordinate writing events with nautical themes fascinated by what it means to move with the water.

Do I want to go with the flow? Chart a new course? Head into the wind?

The Water Moves Me workshops combine maritime history, time in nature, writing, storytelling, and inspiration from local artisans.

No writing experience is needed, just a creative spirit.

I’m creating something new; I got that.  But it’s no different than setting sail on a warm day and knowing that the wind, the water, and the good fellowship of those around me will get me where I want, if not need, to go.  

Come join us!
