January 27-29, 2021

Santa Fe Workshops

Day Two – Filling the Well: Where Do Ideas Come From?
Day Three – The True Secret of Writing & the Art of Seeing
Natalie Goldberg and Eddie Soloway embrace the creative journey with a similar spirit. Natalie’s books have sold millions of copies in multiple languages, have inspired thousands of writers, and connected us deeply to her stories about the gift of every moment. Wonder and joy best characterize Eddie’s photographs and his decades of commitment to teaching. His photographs have been called a love song to the natural world. While Natalie and Eddie both live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a chance meeting far from home led to a regular exchange of stories, and photographs of beauty.
Santa Fe Workshops is excited to bring together these two friends, and for our first time, a photographer and a writer. In three presentations, spread over three days, Natalie and Eddie explore the intersection of the two universal languages – images and words. Together they unfold and reveal the truths they have discovered using images and words that define their creative careers.
Join Natalie and Eddie on a free spirited and enjoyable journey of discovery that changes the way you write and photograph. For more info and to register, click here.
