Bill Roorbach


My earliest (other than Irving Fiske) and one of my best teachers in the art of Creative Nonfiction. Also a really nice guy. I want to thank you, Bill, for all you have done to help me and my writing, and to recommend your books to anyone interested in GOOD WRITING. I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read by you (haven’t read them all yet).  Check it out and also– Bill Roorbach and Dave Gessner, two good writers with a great sense of humor.  See



About quarryhillcreativecenterVT

I am the daughter of the founders of Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT. I've been a writer all my life, and also love to draw in pastel, like my mother. My father taught me to write and many other things (rather as Prospero taught Miranda). I learned many things from my mother too-- not just how to draw, but how to be caring and kind to animals and things that can not protect themeselves. "They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain." That has been her central point of view and is one of Quarry Hill's mottos. We welcome visitors, love children, and have places to rent and sell if anyone wants to come live in the beauty of the Vermont Mountains.
