A Writer’s Winter Retreat

December 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - December 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm


Every writer’s soul, every soul, needs a time of rest and quiet: a time apart to listen, reflect, to be still, to absorb and refresh the soul. The December weekend will offer a combination of quiet time for walks and reflection in the stillness of nature’s winter, daily writing workshops, literary guidance, relaxation and encouragement: and time to work on new or existing projects.

Writers will sharpen their 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. Everyone is welcome: those just beginning to write and published writers. A quiet weekend in nature can enrich both the spiritual life and writing life. This weekend is an opportunity to slow down.

Date & Time: Fri., Dec. 13, at 5pm through Sun., Dec. 15,, at 1pm

Presenter: Magie Dominic

Fee: $275
