  • Monthly Day-Away Memoir Retreats Launch January 26th in Seattle

    If your New Year’s resolution includes writing your memoir, I’m here to help. I’m launching monthly day-long memoir retreats in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood starting Saturday, January 26th. These comprehensive day-long retreats go from 8:30 AM to 9 PM. They will be held at Sakona at Sunset Hill, the new two-bedroom writing flat my family recently constructed on the ground floor of our home.

    The idea behind these monthly day-long writing retreats is to deliver the power and magic an intimate writing retreat offers at an affordable price that makes it accessible for anyone who needs help writing the story they need to tell.

    Retreats include a group critique session, one-on-one coaching, blocks of writing time and amazing food and conversation with an small group of supportive writers. Full details are below.



    • 8:30 to 9:00 AM: arrival time and continental breakfast
    • 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM: intentions for retreat and craft session. (Please bring the first 1,200 words from your memoir in progress.We will do a group critique during the craft session for whoever is interested.)
    • 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM: writing time and one-on-one session with Ingrid
    • 12:00 to 1:00 PM: lunch
    • 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM: writing time and one-on-one sessions with Ingrid
    • 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM: dinner, wine (or kombucha), and conversation
    • 7:30 to 9:00 PM: story sharing/celebration

    Note:The retreat ends at 9:00 pm (or whenever the sharing/celebration wraps up). However, any writer visiting from out of town is welcome to stay the night. The Sakona at Sunset Hill features two bedrooms and sleeps a total of four.
