Sit, Write, Walk – A Journey of Self Discovery

Inspired by Natalie Goldberg’s legendary True Secret retreats, you’ll be guided through a series of meditation and writing workshops, releasing any old barriers to living, or writing, fully. There is no need to have ever written anything beforehand; the focus here is on the practice of moving the hand across the page, not the creation of a story or poem – although that may be what comes out.

The Writing Retreat

The purpose of the Writing Retreat is to support budding writers in accomplishing an ambitious, self-paced writing challenge. The goal of the Writing Retreat is the rapid production of a first draft—not the careful editing and refining of a final draft. Everyone at the writing retreat (including staff) chooses a specific numerical goal for what they’ll write during the month. Then they turn off their inner editors and focus on hitting their daily word count.

In either case, you’ll be moving toward where the power and the passion of your writing is.

Grand Tourist Writer’s Retreat

All of the writing here features characters. In fiction we make them up. In nonfiction they are real people, including yourselves. Poetry can include both. You will hear about several interesting historical figures and you may feel inspired to write about them or create characters with similar issues. But how do you write about difficult/sad/mean/unlikeable or otherwise tricky personalities without making them into cardboard figures of melodrama? You’ll explore this and also share some of the writing we’ve generated during the journey.

There is no need to have ever written anything beforehand; the focus here is on the practice of moving the hand across the page, not the creation of a story or poem – although that may be what comes out.
