(Advanced reservations must be made through the Writers’ League.)
This winter’s retreat will help you set the tone for the season with a day of writing practice and meditation. While the media tells us to shop, party and overeat, the Earth gives us a different message, that it is time to withdraw, to go under. May Sarton wrote that, “Winter is the season when both animals and humans strip down to the marrow.”
Topics and exercises at the retreat are designed to help you go deep inside yourself, to strip to the marrow, and get grounded for the weeks and months ahead.
A macrobiotic lunch is included in the registration price. We will be breaking for lunch, so students also have the option to leave campus and purchase food during that time.
Open to all levels of writers.
Who Should Attend?
- Anyone interested in starting a writing practice
- Writers who want to deepen their writing experience
- Students of past “Build a Writing Practice” classes
