This four day spring retreat for writers is both an invitation and an opportunity. Explore, strengthen and express your call to write. Develop tools and techniques through daily writing prompts that will inspire and guide you throughout the weekend. Learn basic essentials about the publishing industry. Identify and overcome obstacles to your creativity.
Whether you write massive novels or simply keep a daily journal what matters is that you honor your writer’s voice.
Walk on paths overlooking a river for inspiration and enjoy gardens that have awakened and are ready to bloom. Write in peaceful solitude during the day and enjoy the sharing of work in the evening.
This is a weekend for you to rest, reflect, and write.
