Annual Autumn Weekend Retreat at Oceanside

Oceanside Retreat 2022, September 30-October 2-retreat full

 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. Please be sure to review the refund policy below. 

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:
