We welcome writers at all stages of their journey, from beginners to seasoned authors. Cost $225 before June 1; $250 after PAYMENT should be made via Venmo: @cherylmurfin What to expect: Two AWA-certified facilitators 1 simple dinner 2 continental breakfasts A community of 12 to 14 writers 1 silent walk Much play to access our writing 8-10 writing sessions 2 experiences of Yoga Nidra as an entryway to writing 2 BYOB lunch conversations (or an hour break for those who’d rather have that) And all the coffee, tea, or seltzer you can down What we hope to achieve: We all get stuck no matter where we are on the writing journey, whether just starting out or plowing toward publication. We start a piece, we go with it for a while, it putters out and then it sits in our writer's craw and nags at us. This retreat is an opportunity to serve three different writers. You are invited to: Return to a piece that's been nagging you and move it forward using the exercises and prompts we'll engage in. It’s a chance to discuss your project, receive ideas from other writers (as a gift of thought rather than a must-use), and gain encouragement toward completing the work. OR Start a new piece of writing at the beginning of the retreat and help it find its feet throughout the two days. OR Simply enjoy two full days of writing, using some unique approaches, prompts, and encouragement. We look forward to writing with you! **NOTE this is not an in-residence retreat. Participants will need to secure accommodations for the weekend. We are located in the Morgan Junction are of West Seattle.
