Writing Retreats

Are you overdue for some quality time with your muse?

Rekindle your relationship on a writing retreat with me.

Whether your writing and storytelling is gathering dust on the “someday” shelf or you’ve been elbows-deep in word counts and copy for a while now, your creativity deserves a few days at the center of your universe.

Come away with a small group of writers — for a weekend or a week — and sink into the experience of being a writer who writes in the company of other writers.

Put words on paper.

Honor your creativity.
Put words on paper.
Draw inspiration from a new environment.
Put words on paper.
Spark the beginnings of deep and meaningful connections with other writers.

Put. Words. On. Paper.

I host several writing retreats each year, most in Northern California where we have an abundance of choices within a few hours of the San Francisco Bay Area.

I specialize in boutique experiences for groups of six or eight writers; my retreats are designed with individual personalities and the intimacy of small group dynamics in mind.

At my retreats, I balance individual attention with group engagement, with plenty of room for work and play in a safe, nonjudgmental space. I want you to know that in one of my writing retreats, you belong exactly where you are, exactly as you are, and we just wouldn’t be the same without you.

Each retreat is a safe space because I believe in (and have witnessed) the power of safe spaces to invite access to deeper expression and stimulate new levels of creativity.
Once a year, I host a retreat for twelve or more writers who appreciate the energy and dynamics of larger groups. They’re an enormous amount of fun!

Regardless of the size of the group, the amount of progress each writer makes is always remarkable. My favorite, though, is when a blocked writer breaks through and wallows in the amazing feeling of writing again.

We write by the ocean, by rivers, and by lakes. We write in the hills, in the mountains, and in the foothills. We write in the Central Valley, in wine country, and even write on trains.
Sure, you can do a writing retreat on your own — and I encourage you to do so, if you can’t make it to one of my retreats — but when you add other people to the mix, you add layers and dimension to your experience, which can’t help but add layers and dimension to your writing.
