One Day 


Day-long writing retreats

The last Day-Long sold out in 5 days

If you'd like to attend, don't delay

Periodically through the year, I host a day-long writing retreat at my home in San Francisco (near to BART, easy street parking).

Limited to 8 participants (in all genres), these day-long writing retreats are designed to give writers lots of uninterrupted writing time in a peaceful and beautiful well as inspire creativity and hone skills.

Writers at the retreat are pampered with freshly ground coffee, a gourmet selection of tea, homemade breakfast cake, homemade soup, salad, and often, just-baked bread. We end the day with wine and cheese.

Writing in community is one of the best ways to nourish your own writing and keep yourself accountable. 

Come and see how effective--and nurturing--it can be.
