Creative Writing Retreat

Are you frustrated by distractions and the pull of everyday demands? Do you need a break from the ugliness, the darkness that permeates the news? Does your heart long for peace and healing?

Come rest your mind and heart in this safe space of healing energy. Immerse yourself in a creative environment devoted to you and your individual writing project. Allow your creative spirit to expand as you express yourself in writing. Experience the power of giving voice to your written words as we share in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

Whatever you write—from funny to fantastical, romantic to religious, real or imagined—you are welcome here. Creativity brings light and the world needs your light.

There will be free time for writing, as well as, scheduled workshops for feedback, brainstorming, and supporting each other on our writing journeys.

  • Starting a new writing project and need a jump start? I’ll supply you with the tools and guidance you need to get started.
  • Stalled along the way and need to refuel? Small group brainstorming sessions are just what you need to get unstuck.
  • Almost done and need dedicated time to finish? Experience the collective creative energy of writing in the company of others or find one of Pendle Hill’s quiet nooks to write alone.
  • Not sure what to write, but you know you have a story to tell? Learn and practice freewriting techniques to excavate ideas.

Meditate, rejuvenate, walk the nature trails, fan the flame of your creative inner light, and Just Write.
