Patricia Lee Lewis, MFA, of Patchwork Farm Retreat, offers creative writing and yoga workshops and retreats at mountainside Patchwork Farm in western Massachusetts and at sacred sites around the world, for writers at all levels of skill and experience. The writing process is based on the method developed by Amherst Writers & Artists, of which Patricia is an affiliate and national trainer of workshop leaders. This method provides beginning and experienced writers with a supportive, encouraging context in which to write.

Patchwork offerings include: international writing & yoga retreats in Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Puerto Rico, Spain, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico; writing & yoga retreats near Austin, Texas and in The Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts; and individual manuscript consultation, editing and critique. Patchwork Writers are eligible to contribute bi-annually to PATCHWORK, an on-line journal of writers and artists.
