Join us online for a two-week writing retreat using poetry and short fiction to explore who we are individually and to each other at this unprecedented moment.
At a time when our need for connection is at its greatest, we’ll write to heal, as we look at work that channels love, fear and what it means to be human. Experimenting with different forms and exploring unique ways to source new language, you’ll conclude with drafts for several pieces that reflect your experiences of isolation, longing and hope for the future. Aspects of craft will also be discussed throughout the two weeks.
