Writer, artist offer retreat at Peterson Bay

Writer Marilyn Sigman and artist Marilyn Kirkham lead a writer and artist retreat, “Line by Line,” from Aug. 16 to 18 at the Center for Alaska Coastal Studies’ Peterson Bay Field Station across Kachemak Bay from Homer. Join them for tide pooling and forest walks guided by CACS naturalists followed by guided exercises to help students transform natural history and scientific information into creative nonfiction and visual art that combines lines of text and line sketches. The fee is $200 and includes water taxi transportation, food, two nights lodging and a journal.
