Lyndi Allison believes that new writers should surround themselves with like-minded creatives. She is truly one of my favorite creatives. We met at a beach community restaurant in Panama, where told me about an introductory writers workshop she was hosting. We talked about writing on this same occasion and she wooed me into attending her workshop. I’m really glad I went. Pre pandemic, I was a regular at her full workshops. Lyndi still hosts these workshops at a wonderful place she calls home. Her home is also known as Tranquilo Retreat, A Writer’s Getaway.
Lyndi is herself a fiction writer in the young adult sci-fi genre. Her workshops have prompted the works of several fiction, non-fiction writers, and songwriters, myself included. My first published songs were in fact born at her workshops.
