Writers ConferencePage 2 Real Estate Magazine July 8, 20112011 Mendocino CoastWhat does a writer need? Peace, a beautiful place to work, and a supportivecommunity. The glorious Mendocino Coast has it all!—Norma WatkinsBeginning as a one-day affair twenty-two years ago, the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference atCollege of the Redwoods has grown into a three-day feast for writers. Here at the edge of the Pacific, talentedauthors (who can also teach) join enthusiastic writers from every level for intensive study, workshops, panels,eating, drinking and inspiration. Agents and editors are available for private consultations.Why Writers Choose Mendocino CountyThe following is a sampling of our coastal community’s published authors, their reasons for living in MendocinoCounty. Not all of them will be at the Conference.Bruce Anderson, publisher of the Anderson Valley Advertiser, the widely read and oftencontroversial weekly newspaper, has this to say about Mendocino County: “In these Balkanized times thoseof us who live in rural communities are uniquely fortunate because we encounter a wide variety of people.Just yesterday I talked with, among others, an immigrant worker, a redneck guy I’ve known for many years,and a professional man new to the valley. Where else could you do that?”Maureen Eppstein, author of Rogue Wave on Glass BeachWhat drew me to Mendocino? Answer: a fishIn 1970 I camped with my family at Russian Gulch. One afternoon, a man came up from the sea withtwo shiny fish hanging from his hands. He offered us one, which we took and ate. It was a magic fish with aninvisible line attached. Over the years, the fish tugged on the line. Finally, in 2000, it reeled us in.Adrienne Ross, author of In the Eyes, In the MouthI am a native Californian. I lived in Berkeley for many years, and migrated to the coast in 1996 for thequiet and the ocean. I write fiction, and have won two first-place awards for my short story collection In theEyes, In the Mouth, published by Lost Coast Press.Bruce Patterson, author of Walking Tractor, Turned Round in My Boots, Canadians onEverest, and The Lions of TsavoPatterson, whose gritty books explore the vagaries rural life, has this to say about living in AndersonValley. “When I got out of the army I went straight to the dirt to make my living. In my writing Itry to make Place a character. It’s scary how little sense of place people have now. Place matters.Maggie Watson, author of A Graceful Farewell: Putting Your Affairs in OrderI moved to the Mendocino coast because I needed to get away to a calmer and quieter place. I hadvisited in 1982 and loved the people and environment. So when the opportunity arose in 1987 to leaveSan Francisco, it was not hard to choose Mendocino. I had friends here already who made moving easy. InMendocino, it is who you know that counts. My book, A Graceful Farewell: Putting Your Affairs in Order, cameout of my work as a professional organizer. It is a part of the work I love to do.Norma Watkins, author of The Last Resort: Taking the Mississippi CureI came to the Mendocino Coast from Miami kicking and screaming. “I don’t want to move to Fort Bragg,”I told my husband. “I don’t know any writers there.” A professor in my MFA program said a fellow graduatehad moved there and I should call her. Ginny Rorby told me to come on out, said she’d take me under herwing. Boy, did she. Fifteen years later, I teach creative writing at the College of the Redwoods, help with theMendocino Coast Writers Conference, belong to the California Writers Club, two writers’ groups, and foster agroup of Feature Writers. Feels as if I was not only taken under a wing, but sat on by the chicken.Gayle Green, author of Insommniac; Doris Lessing: The Poetics of Change;The Woman Who Knew Too Much: Alice Stewart and the Secrets of Radiation.Our lives are filled with distractions. Finding quiet, so you can to hear yourself think, is important for awriter. I used Mendocino as a retreat for writing the better part of my last two books because the environmenthere is peaceful and inspiring.Real Estate Magazine is a FREE Publication.The price of a subscription covers the cost of FIRST CLASS MAIL plus a small handling fee.Yes, I would like to receive REAL ESTATE MAGAZINE for:o 10 weeks (5 issues) $8.00 o 6 months (13 issues) $21.00o 12 months (26 issues) $40.00o Outside the Continental USA: Please InquirePlease send check or money order to:REAL ESTATE MAGAZINE, 711 North Main Street, Fort Bragg, CA 95437Name _____________________________________________________________________Address _______________________________________________________________City State Zip _______________________________________________________________(Please allow 3 weeks for first delivery)Ginny Rorby, author of Dolphin Sky, Hurt Go Happy, The Outside of a Horse, and Lostin the River of GrassI always say, when asked why I moved here, that it was so this Florida girl would never be hot again aslong as I live. But the truth is, I visited Mendocino in 1981 and fell in love with it and the coast. By the time Ifinally made it, in 1991, I’d been living in Miami for twenty-five years. What I really wanted was a little peace,tall trees, the sound of a creek running, and the opportunity to live as much outside as inside. I moved herewithout knowing a soul, and lucked into a community full of artists and writers. The second person I methere was a writer, and we started a group. Twenty years later, a few of that original group still meet everyother week. Everything a writer needs is right here: inspiration, a network of other writers, and friends whoapplaud and support your efforts.Charles Furey, author of Going Back: A Navy Airman in the Pacific WarOn the first day of May in 1975, when we moved from demented Berkeley to a quiet homestead besidethe Ten Mile Dunes, we thought we had arrived in Paradise. Paradise with a ten-foot dug well and a leachfield and compost bin and burn barrel and wood shed and an acre of green grass and a garden of deepsandy loam. “Corn won’t grow here,” our neighbor said, but we planted corn anyhow and it grew six-feet tall,and a row of sunflowers as a windbreak, even higher. And then, after twenty-four years of chopping firewoodand hauling ashes out to the garden and picking apples and raising generations of gophers and hammeringand sawing and painting and sewing and canning and writing and mowing grass and flying kites and hikingacross the dunes to the ocean we moved to The Woods. A quieter part of the wonderful Mendocino coast.Less work. More time to watch the blue jays, stark against the dawning sky, time to listen when the dovesmourn the fading light.Valerie Miner, author of thirteen books, including After Eden, Range of Light, A WalkingFire, and Winter’s EdgeFrom our cabin window in Anderson Valley and walking nearby, I have seen cougar, bear, wild pig, pygmyowls, osprey, blue heron, coyote, bobcat and a range of other critters. What a pleasure to drive fifteen minutesand walk among the giant redwoods in Hendy Woods or to take a longer ride to the coast where theheadlands beckon.Jay Frankston, author of Tales of Mendocino and Mendocino MagicI’m what they called a “drop out”. I was a lawyer in New York and, after twenty years of practice, I decidedto leave New York with its hustle and bustle and its rat race mentality. We drove west in a van, with the twokids and the dog and wound up in Mendocino. We didn’t choose Mendocino. It chose us as it usually does.We’ve never regretted a thing. Mendocino is a breath of fresh air.Molly Dwyer, author of Requiem for the Author of Frankenstein came to the MendocinoCoast in the 1970s. Even then it teemed with life and creativity. Being a writer feels legitimate in this community—perhapsbecause of the genuine support, the many opportunities to hone one’s craft and learnfrom other artists. But truly, it goes beyond that, to the beauty, the pace of life, the values of small town living.Mendocino is nurturing. It brings out the inspired best in people. It motivated me to finish an award-winningnovel, and now, I’m onto my third large work. I feel home and lucky to live here.Fauna Perkins, co-author with K. Read of Nothing to DeclareI’d wanted to write since childhood. In my twenties I thought I could combine a trip to Europe and writingfull time, and came close to living in England until being called home because of my mother’s illness. Forthe next few years, marriage, children, divorce and work kept me exhausted. I piddled along for more yearsuntil marrying an artist and moving to Mendocino twenty years ago. With his encouragement, I found awealth of compatible people interested in all aspects of art. I finally started writing again and purred like acontented cat.Continued on Page 11ON OUR COVER: Photos of some of Mendocino County’s published writers and images of some oftheir book covers.

Starting in January of 2007, local writers performed their work“The Sea Gull Years” and “The Early Years and How We Came to Town”.Since then the Series has hosted many literary events, featuring more writers and poets complemented bylocal musicians, who open the shows and fill in at the breaks. The cabaret setting of the Mendocino Hotel GardenRoom allows for casual gatherings, being a great source of inspiration and opportunity for networking for all. Visitwww.mendocinostories.com.—Pattie DeMatteoWriters of the Mendocino Coast, a gathering of local writers and a certified branch of the CaliforniaWriters Club, the oldest professional writers club in the United States. We support local writers of all stripesand ages, from beginners to professionals, all genres, all forms. We gather to meet other writers, find and formwriting groups, and generally celebrate words. We present speakers, workshops, salons, open and juried mics,and the occasional quirky event like Bloomsday. Join us the third Wednesday of the month, 6:00 p.m. at theMendocino Hotel. Writersofthemendocinocoast.org—Molly DwyerPoetry on the Coast“I’d never felt so completely welcomed and supported as a poet,” says Devreaux Baker of her move toMendocino in the mid-1970s. Fellow poets encouraged her to submit her work to literary journals. Local newspublications featured pages of poetry. Radio programs discussed the poetry scene. Reading series proliferated.Over the years since then, poetry reading venues have shifted like the sandbar at Big River Beach. Readingprograms have risen and ebbed and risen again. Some have remained constant. This May, Gordon Blackorganized his thirty-sixth annual Mendocino Spring Poetry Celebration, which brought together over fortypoets for an open reading hosted by former Mendocino resident and poet Sharon Doubiago and radio host DanRoberts, whose Rhythm Running River program on KZYX&Z features poets reading their work. Baker herselfruns the monthly Mendocino Coast Poetry Series in space donated by the Mendocino Hotel. Blake More runsa similar series in Point Arena. The Coast Slam (www.facebook.com/CoastSlam) channels the youthful energyof younger poets. Poets are still drawn to the Mendocino Coast, to find inspiration in this spectacular landscape,and support in a thriving literary community.—Maureen EppsteinYoung WritersYoung writers in Mendocino get an early start. California Poets in the Schools writers inspire over fifteen hundredyouth annually in K-12 classrooms. The youngest poets play with alliteration and other language strategiesto create chants. Teens explore forms including haiku and the prose poem. Support for youth writing workshopscomes from Arts Council of Mendocino County—GASP and Mendocino County Office of Education, which publishesan annual anthology. Fifth-graders Britanny Madden and Julian Molina won international awards for peacepoems this year. Poets Blake More and Karen Lewis have received California Arts Council “Artists in the Schools”grants to further literary arts in local classrooms,—Karen LewisCoast Slam was begun by slam artist Christina Perez to expose young people to the spoken-word art form.With support from the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference and Big Brothers Big Sisters, monthly slams featuringawesome guests poets are offered on first Tuesdays at the Mendocino Hotel. Everyone is invited to compete,and dance during intermission to DJ Ramos. For news of the past and future slams, go to http://www.facebook.com/CoastSlamBook Clubs and Writing GroupsThe area abounds in book clubs and writers groups. Check the shelves at Gallery Books for a sampling of selectionsby area book clubs.Creative Writing CoursesThe best way to become part of the writing community is to join one of the non-credit creative writing classes atCollege of the Redwoods. Call (707) 962-2664 for a schedule and information. Taught year-round by professionawriters, these courses offer knowledge, a roadmap, and support to writers of all levels.Publishing and Promotion for Writers; Cypress House/Lost Coast Press/QED PressThe Mendocino coast is one of the greatest places for writers because its extraordinary beauty and relative serenityoffer limitless inspiration and the support of a large and very diverse artistic community. When my husband,John Fremont, and I decided to create a family-owned independent press, we had already been longtime coastresidents, and were part of the writers’ community. Since we had every intention of living in this area permanently,Fort Bragg naturally became the birthplace of Cypress House, which has grown into an award-winning publishingcompany. Our lines include books on health and healing, self-help, inspiration, books for writers, literary history,travel, humanities, mentoring, and how-to-fold paper airplanes. We also represent a number of independentpresses and authors. For more than twenty-five years we’ve provided writers with education and editorial, bookdesign, production, and marketing services. Some of our clients are among the most successful independentpublishers in the nation. —Cynthia FrankCypress House, Lost Coast Press, QED Press 155 Cypress, FB, CA 95437 www.cypresshouse.comREMMendocinoCoastWritersConferenceFACULTY READINGSOpen to the public at no charge12:30–1:30 pm daily, Room 300 at College of the RedwoodsThurs.
