Where Do You Create? (Writer’s Retreats & Artist’s Studios)

I’ve found some interesting places that writers and artists create on my virtual travels. Join me for a look at some historical, mobile, funky weird, and well…more normal…artist studios.

All photos link to their original authors.

George Bernard Shaw’s writing hut, dubbed “London” so his staff wouldn’t be lying when they said he had “gone to London.”

About Karen Y. Hamilton

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.

  1. I like the log cabin office and the white with floral outdoor office the best. Some of these are nice cozy spaces, but a little too closed in for me…lol.
