Writing on the River

January 6 @ 12:00 pm - January 12 @ 12:00 pm


A space and place for academic and independent writers, to focus in a contemplative setting that inspires productivity and community. Writers will arrive on Sunday, and depart Saturday morning, unless you chose the mini retreat, in which case you would depart Wednesday afternoon. An opening dinner will be provided on Sunday, but all other meals are the guests’ responsibility. While you do not have to be an academic professional to apply, the 4-7 day retreats are designed in concert with most academic calendars.

2019 Retreat Dates:
Session A: January 6-12
Session B: March 3-9
Session C: March 10-16
Session D: March 17-23
