A Working Poets Retreat 2019

October 17 - 20, 2019


Join poets Rebecca Kai Dotlich and Georgia Heard for a working poet’s retreat in the woods. Less structured than a traditional workshop, this intimate retreat will give you time and space to foster your creativity and focus on your individual writing in a nurturing environment. These few days will consist of a mixture of intense workshopping on new poems generated and poems-in-progress, as well as morning guided poetry prompts and afternoon roundtable readings and group feedback. This retreat serves all poets, writing for any audience.
