Tea and Tales Kicks off in April!

Newport: Sunshine Silver Lining Vision Consulting exclusively announces their premiere workshop series Tea and Tales. This series of writing and reading workshops will highlight both Vermont writers and authors as well as a variety of writing styles from journalling to memoir, poetry and screenwriting.

This spring, Tea and Tales will kick off with several workshops at The Work Commons in Newport facilitated by Northeast Kingdom Native Ilene Elliott of ie facilitation.


Private journaling is powerful and worthwhile. The added dynamic and energy of writing in a group can provide validation, encouragement, support, and new insight. Participants of ilene’s workshops and retreats are introduced to handwritten journaling strategies and techniques that can be incorporated into their daily lives.

A life-long Vermonter, Ilene was born, raised, and lived most of her life in the Northeast Kingdom. In 2016 she relocated to central Vermont. For almost 30 years she has nurtured her own journaling practice while facilitating journaling workshops and retreats for others. Ilene describes journaling as a tool for self-awareness and self-discovery, a way to grow in relationship with self and stir the pot of creativity.
