Outdoor Writing Retreats

Connect to something greater than the internet – leave your smart phone, tablet, and computer at home and let the outdoors spark your creative side. This is a great opportunity to inspire Poets, Novelists, Creative Writers, Memoirists, Bloggers, or Personal Journaling.

Experiential Local Venue Writing Retreats

Join us for a day or half day in a new setting – a local microbrewery, small farm, coffeehouse – where new perspectives and inspiration flow freely. Become acquainted with and support a local business. This is a good opportunity to explore some new and interesting topics for your professional writing or Blog.
