My escape to Highland Haven with Donna’s Wisdom of Women Writing Retreat in 2022 was the privilege of a lifetime. In this entirely safe and welcoming space, with amazing women, we got to meet and connect, and share and draw inspiration from each other in ways I had not anticipated. The one-on-one time with Donna was invaluable for coaching and getting redirected on some of my stuck points. The beautiful natural setting with magical creatures showing their faces here and there, the meals and activities—all of it was amazing! It was a truly enriching experience that jump-started my process and laid the foundation for what I hope will one day be the memoir I didn’t know for sure I had in me. (I do.) Thank you, Donna.
