Judyth Hill was the editor of my three previous poetry collections. We reunited in Slovenia to edit my fourth manuscript. Where I was stumped, Judyth provided a title, a simple deletion or addition of a word or sentence, and the poem would be complete. Sometimes, she'd send me off to write more. A writer needs a second pair of eyes. Judyth offers 20/20 vision and wild mind. I love the alchemy we create together and its fruits. In addition to her editing, she's a master teacher. I unreservedly recommend any course or workshop she ever offers.

Itinerary & Pricing

Each afternoon we'll break for an activity in the kitchen to learn about local food production and preparation by picking fruit from heirloom trees, canning preserves, making schnapps or foraging in the forest. The Novaks practice SlowFood by securing the majority of their ingredients from their fields, their neighbors, the nearby forest and famed local trout stream. It will be the freshest food you've ever tasted!
