The final day of the 2013 Festival featured two events, held back to back at the South Berkshire Friends Meeting House in Great Barrington.

Author and writing instructor Dara Lurie presented an interactive workshop on writing as a process of personal growth and self-understanding.

Afterwards, three women adventurers–Susan Fox Rogers, Dawn Paul and Dorothy Albertini–took the stage to talk about writing their experiences of solo adventuring.  As it turned out, some of the adventures were more inward and imaginative than outward-bound, but all offered provocative insights in using writing as a vehicle for exploration.
