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 setting...as 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.
