THE WRITE LIFE ONLINE RETREAT
February 12, 2021 - February 20, 2021$100
You’re inspired. You’re determined. Your next story /article/book /memoir is “write” on the tip of your pen or surface of your computer screen—BUT—it’s hard to prioritize your creative work. Well, you’re not alone.
Spend a few days in creative contemplation on Zoom with facilitators and fellow writers. Gather each morning as a group to explore the concept of your creativity being a spiritual gift that is integral to your identity — your reality. Spend your mornings and afternoons in quiet contemplation and writing. In the evenings share your work, offer and receive critiques in a safe, supportive atmosphere.
Note: This is not a program for marketing or teaching/learning how to write.
Bring your unfinished manuscript, your creativity, and your writing materials to our sessions. Prioritize time to commune with your inner muse and bring forth your masterpiece during the retreat.
The retreat will culminate with a public reading on Saturday, Feb. 20 that includes participants.
Note: 10 participants max
