Northwest Women Poets: Give Yourself a Retreat for Valentine's Day (& a year subscription to Crab Creek Review)- last day of the special rate!
In the Northwest, Valentine's Day is known to many as the day to prune the roses and prepare the bushes for a season of abundant blossoms. This strikes me as a great expression of love: to believe that winter will eventually end and there will be bouquets of flowers, a scented landscape even in a city garden.
Perhaps that's why Susan Rich and I chose this holiday as the final date for our pre-conference special rates. Those writers who sign up for Poets on the Coast before midnight on February 14th will receive a one year subscription to Crab Creek Review and a reduced rate on our weekend writing retreat.
Since we first posted information on Poets on the Coast, we're excited to announce that we've added an optional yoga component to the weekend. Certified yoga instructor and fitness specialist, Kay Jensen, will lead a morning yoga session on both Saturday and Sunday.
Our September 9-11th weekend is the only conference of its kind (well, that we know of) on the Oregon coast. We're thrilled that writers are coming from all corners of the country to join us; we're hoping that you (or a writer you know) will consider joining us too.

You can pay by check by mail or by PayPal. And if you have any questions, feel free to drop us a line at: poetsonthecoast (at) yahoo.com
