Annual Autumn Weekend Retreat at Oceanside

Oceanside Retreat 2021, Oct 8-10

 An October weekend of writing and revitalizing 

Join us this October for our much-loved weekend retreat at the Oregon Coast. Join us to write together in the spacious house we have rented for the past 5 years, full of decks, ocean views, and comfy furniture. We will write to prompts, read our work out loud, and offer one another feedback. You will have plenty of time for solo writing and walks on the beach or to find a cozy chair and curl up with your book.

Please Note: Participants must be vaccinated against the Covid virus. If it seems that for any reason our gathering cannot happen safely, we will cancel the event, and registered participants will be fully refunded. 

Also Please Note: Participants are responsible for their own lodging. There are a few available options in Oceanside (book early!), as well as in Netarts and Tillamook. Explore options here: https://tillamookcoast.com/lodgings/oceanside/

In addition to our prompt writes, we host a personal writing retreat day on Friday. Arrive anytime after 9:30 am. 

We also are offer a discounted editing & coaching opportunity on a first come basis. One of our editors will read a portion of your manuscript in advance, and you'll have an appointment at the retreat to discuss your project with them.
