“Playshops are summer camp for the soul, full of humor, creativity, joy and poignant moments.  Krayna’s a brilliant facilitator of the heart, who supports artistic freedom and exuberant expression with no pressure or critiquing.  You’ll go home refreshed after being in the company of others who share a love of words and community.”   JoRene Byers, Writer & Poet

Here’s what one participant has to say about her experience:
“I went to the last Feast and was blown away by the beauty of the overall event.  Everything was delicious – the food, the music, the poetry and the art that adorned the walls.  the collaborators paid exquisite attention to detail and I felt lovingly cared for.  My partner had conversations with strangers and by the time we left, we had new friends.  I’ve not experienced anything quite like this before.  Don’t miss the next one!”
