Life Writing/Memoir: A Weekend Writing Retreat

January 26 @ 5:00 pm - January 28 @ 1:00 pm


Whether your writing is for personal journals or for publication, there are aspects we share as writers. This weekend writing retreat, with a focus on creative non-fiction and fiction, is centered on the belief that when we leave behind the disruptions of our busy lives and gather in a supportive community we make important breakthroughs in our writing. This weekend is for everyone, and for those who have been on previous retreats, the weekend will be an opportunity to go a little deeper into the spiritual life as well as the writing life.

The weekend will reinforce the writer’s life, (re)-discover the writer’s soul, offer daily workshops, craft discussion, writing prompts, feedback, motivation, inspiration and time to work on new or existing projects. The retreat is open to writers of every genre, both beginners and advanced. Writers will sharpen writing skills, meet other exceptional writers, take walks with a view of the mountains and river, and have time for meals and plenty of breaks.

Whether you are a beginner writer or a published author, you will be energized by the support, literary guidance, relaxation and encouragement. Believe in your story – you are the best one to write it!
