As light dances on the sand, as storms roll in across the ocean, as the crocuses bloom by the sea, and as the sun peeks out to warm our shoulders, come along and spend five days on the Oregon Coast focused on writing.
This is your invitation to travel to Manzanita, Oregon in February and connect with experienced mentors who will share their thoughts about writing, publishing, and living the writing life.
This is your invitation to breathe in the salt air and eat delicious, nutritious meals and be present to discovering the next step on your path.
This in your invitation to bring whatever stories that are waiting to be told inside you and give yourself the gift of space to simply write.
This is your invitation to bring your current writing project, whatever it might be, and spend time putting pen to paper.
This is your invitation to come along, because this is a retreat for the writer who is you.
This is the first retreat in a new series called the Studio Gatherings. These retreats are inspired by the desire to have a room of our own where we can write, paint, play, and live creative dreams into reality combined with the idea that creative souls crave community with like-minded spirits.
The Pen & Paper mentors who will gather on the coast include:
(and, well, me)
