Elizabeth Gilbert who?

You know you have your own Eat, Pray, Love somewhere within you and now you have the opportunity to start your very own opus.

Vancouver's Listel Hotel is hosting a “The Art of Writing Your Life” workshop in honour of International Women's Day, led by a senior editor of the noted literary journal Geist.

There are both sleep-out ($50) or sleep-in ($288) prices—we do imagine a wine-fuelled pajama party as you and your fellow female scribes compare your racy bios.

See, you didn't even need to divorce your husband, go on anti-depressants and flee to India!

“The Art of Writing Your Life,” Saturday March 8, 1-5 p.m. at the Listel Hotel, 1300 Robson St., 604-681-9161,

$288 price includes one night stay, ½ bottle of wine, breakfast at O'Doul's, in-room French press coffee, notebook and pen, plus a copy of Vancouver Stories and a subscription to Geist.
