Writing can be a lonely job with little feedback or support. Both Cheryl Strayed and Maya Angelou booked themselves in hotels to go on “writing binges” and finish their books. My retreats offer participants a similar experience of several hours in solitude, apart from any distractions or opportunities to be pulled away. Retreats provide support, inspiration and a critique technique that focuses expanding a writer’s strengths.
Retreats are held Saturdays or Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm. Snacks are provided but please bring a lunch. We have two retreat locations, one in Oakland and the other at a secluded bayside beach house (approximately 30-45 minutes from east bay and San Francisco) . Writers bring their own computer (or paper) and find a space to write quietly on their own. In the last hour we come together for refreshments and feedback (if desired). Whether you are writing for public recognition, inner healing, or connection to community—you are welcome. Fee is 100$
