2017/2018 TEACHING SCHEDULE...
"Not having written poetry for decades, I felt drawn to take Susan’s workshop. It was just what I needed. I was beginning to see how words expanded my images, and how my images took words to places words alone could not go. My work took off in exciting new directions. Susan's insights, exercises, knowledge as a writer and photographer herself, make the whole experience something I will always treasure. She creates a wonderfully enriching environment that truly nurtures growth and personal vision.”
Former Student, Photography Instructor at St. Paul’s Academy

“This retreat was so rejuvenating on so many levels and a true gift. You are extraordinary women, mentors and teachers, and I thank you for the depth of my being."
2017 Workshop Participant, Lisa
Back for our second year... Join fine art photographer and best-selling author JOYCE TENNESON and me for a three day creative retreat into YOU. Escape the winter, and join us in Palm Beach for a soulful immersion designed to help you connect with your authentic creative voice. Through powerful guided photography exercises and simple writing prompts, students will learn to access their own signature styles and emerge better able to tap into their artistic flow. Photographers and writers of all levels are welcome!
Teaching with Joyce is an absolute privilege. Looking forward to teaming up with her once again and sharing my new book GRACENOTES! Registration is now open.
FEBRUARY 4 - 10: A PAGE FROM THOREAU at MAINE MEDIA in Rockport, Maine:
"By all means use sometimes to be alone, salute thyself. See what thy soul doth wear, dare to look into thy chest: for 'tis thy own: and tumble up and down what thou find's there."
Henry David Thoreau went to the woods in order to live “more deliberately”. This workshop salutes the 200th anniversary of his birth with a nod to his approach of emptying oneself of the commotion of the world and reconnecting with our authentic voice. A rich currency pulses in the images we make - lyrics unspoken. In this weeklong immersion, participants are invited to gather up some of their best kept photographs and join Author and Photographer Susan Currie for a journey inward using photographic images as prompts for creative writing. In a small batch setting, in the off-season’s quiet, the program will probe and explore a series of deliberate exercises designed to still the mind and move beyond obstacles which may be stalling their flow. The workshop will include guided meditation incorporating the natural world, purposeful study of the myriad possibilities for combining words and images, white space journaling beauty, and group discussion. Treat yourself to Rockport this winter - the perfect immersion for writers and photographers of all levels. Register here...
