We Make the Path by Writing: a writers’ retreat in a time of unknowns
July 24 - July 29
The craft of writing, at its best, always invites the writer to step into the unknown and participate in creatively shaping a story that unfolds as we write, one page at a time. In our current pandemic time of so many unknowns, this writing retreat invites you to engage your own writing as a way-finding practice – a steadying activity for finding meaning and direction in the midst of change and chaos. Whether you’re embarking on a new project or continuing to work on a writing piece started long before “COVID-19” entered our vocabulary, this retreat will provide encouragement, centering, and creative practices for keeping your heart open and your Muse alive and well as you put pen to page or fingers to keyboard.
The retreat is for experienced and emerging writers alike. Designed for writers of fiction, memoir, poetry and other forms, it preserves ample time for your own writing projects while supporting your writing with daily guided writing sessions to spur your muse; gentle qigong and tai ji to listen to your body; and daily online circles and breakouts for abundant conversation, insight and laughter in creative exchanges with writing friends, new and old.
Together, we’ll share the gifts and challenges of the writing life in a virtual retreat designed with careful attention to the limitations and gifts of online programming.
