In this encore episode I’m sharing a conversation with with Alisha Sommer, a Bay Area Freelance Writer & Photographer.

I first encountered Alisha online and so appreciated her aesthetic, specific and gentle presence that I got on her newsletter list and started following her on Instagram. Since then, I’ve featured her in an interview series of creatives based on the Proust questionnaire – link in show notes – and I’ve taken her Liberated Lines writing course.

Alisha has a gift for holding sacred space, for deep listening, and for seeing the ordinary in extraordinary ways.

In the past, she founded and edited a print literary journal (Blackberry: a magazine), published personal essays, creative nonfiction, and poetry for a variety of online and print publications, ghostwritten, and taught at Squam Art Workshops.

Currently, you’ll find her hosting creative gatherings in Sonoma, CA like the Fever Dreams Collective Retreat with Jennette Nielsen (on my wishlist), and facilitating the online writing workshop liberated lines with Robin Sandomirsky.

It was so fun to connect more deeply with Alisha, and I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy listening in.
