Danika Dinsmore and I join forces Thursday, March 24 to present a unique writing workshop that engages the senses and ignites the imagination. Message in a Bottle: Ocean to Ojai – Waves, Wines, Words will take participants on a journey that begins with at the ocean, continues at a working ranch, and ends with an open mic. The workshop is part of WordFest, Ojai’s newest literary festival that spans nine days from March 19-27.

Message in a Bottle begins with an optional orientation meeting Wednesday from 5:30-6pm at Bart’s Books in Ojai followed by a poetry slam. On Thursday, enjoy pastries and coffee at the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center followed by creativity and writing activities in and around Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center in the Ventura Harbor. Next writers will venture to Vino V and Old Creek Ranch Winery to enjoy wine tasting and food pairing with winemaker Michael Meagher. The final portion of the day takes place in Oak View with a 7pm Living Room style open mic at Big Buddha Lounge.

Tickets are available for purchase from me at one of these events or at; you may choose from an all-day pass or a la carte options.
