Annual Weekend Writing Retreat at Oceanside

October 2-4, 2020

What could be better than a weekend of writing at the Oregon Coast? Sign up for the complete schedule!

Writing retreats allow you to step out of your daily life--the job, the roses that need pruning, the laundry, family responsibilities. You'll be inspired with prompts and have time to write on your own. Don't worry about stopping to attend to your belly. We'll take care of that for you. A wonderful community of writers always gathers at our retreats. Won't you join in?

Friday Personal Retreat at Oceanside. Oct 2, 9am - 5pm

Time to work on your own writing projects

Can't come to the rest of the retreat? Join us for your own personal retreat on Friday from 9:30 am-5 pm. Our big beautiful house is full of comfy chairs, long tables, spacious decks, and ocean views. Here you can write, edit, or outline a project you're working on. You can also bring your laptop, and begin to transcribe from your notebook, editing as you go. This is your time to work! We'll have office supplies: post-its, markers, binders, highlighters, etc. to help you organize.
