Over the many years that Kate Miller has led group processes and workshops, she has witnessed powerful moments.
Transformations are visible when people connect with their life stories and express them from the heart.
Miller founded WordPow! to offer these opportunities to others.
She remains a writer—of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and occasional stories for children. At the core of her writing is a deep love of the natural world and the experience of being alive in it.
Miller finds inspiration and renewal living on the edge of Rainy Lake and Voyageurs National Park, where Ontario and Minnesota merge in the soft lines of water, islands, and forest.
Miller's education includes Master's degrees in Transformative Language Arts (2015) and English (1968), as well as writing workshops with Billy Collins (poetry), Alan Cheuse (historical fiction), and Robert Stone (fiction).
Pre-registration and payment of the $45 fee will reserve your space.
