COVID-19 Shelter in Place Update:
Based on California’s status, we will decide 2 weeks prior to the event whether we can hold it. We will postpone it if unable to hold it in May (most likely until Fall). At this time we ask you to fill out the registration form to let us know if you are interested in being kept informed about this special writing retreat. When we do hold it, taking this time to gather together as we write, reflect and relax in nature will be so important for our well-being. So, we hope you’ll sign up below!
