"I have been graced with the opportunity to go to several of the workshops provided by Around the Block over the past few years. If I did nothing else for myself, these experiences will resonate in my consciousness as the ultimate highlight of my life's journey. Tracy, Liz and Sara provide writing inspiration, fun, laughter, beauty, delicious food and camaraderie in gorgeous settings around the world. Give yourself a gift. Attend one of these nominally-priced workshops and receive the riches of a lifetime."
