Because we all have a story in us.

When: October 19th

Where: Lithia Springs Resort, Ashland, Oregon

This will be the first annual Claim Your Story mini conference. I currently coordinate and teach at two other conferences, Summer in Words held every June is Cannon Beach, Oregon and Making it in Changing Times, held the last  Saturday in January each year in Portland. I’ve been teaching writers since 1991, have written books for writers, work as a developmental editor and writing coach, and in all I do encourage people toward expression and creativity.  Because as Murial Rukeyser said, “The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.”

Stay tuned to this site for the schedule, interviews and updates.

Jessica Page Morrell lives in Portland, Oregon where she is surrounded by writers and watches the sky all its moods and shades. She’s the author of Thanks, But This Isn’t For Us, A (Sort of) Compassionate Guide to Why Your Writing is Being Rejected; Bullies, Bastards & Bitches, How to Write the Bad Guys in Fiction; The Writer’s I Ching: Wisdom for the Creative Life, Voices from the Street; Between the Lines: Master The Subtle Elements Of Fiction Writing; and Writing Out the Storm. Morrell works as a highly-sought after developmental editor because if your characters are a bundle of quirks and inconsistencies, or the plot stalls and the scenes don’t flow, these problems need to be unriddled before you submit it to an agent or editor. She also works on memoirs and nonfiction books with a special focus on logic and voice. She began teaching writers in 1991 and now teaches through a series of workshops in the Northwest and at writing conferences throughout North America and lectures to various writing organizations. She is the former writing expert at iVillage.com which was voted as one of the best 101 sites for writers. In 2008 she founded Summer in Words, a yearly writing conference held on the Oregon coast. She hosts a Web site at www.writing-life.com, and she’s written a monthly column about topics related to writing since 1998 that currently appears in The Willamette Writer. She also contributes to The Writer and Writers Digest magazines, writes a monthly e-mail newsletter, The Writing Life, and a Web log at http://thewritinglifetoo.blogspot.com
