Join us in beautiful Manzanita Friday evening June 2 through noon on Sunday, June 4 for an inspiring and constructive writing retreat. Learn more about the writing craft, as well as the business of writing, and best of all, have fun in one of the most magical places on the Oregon Coast—Manzanita.
Authors Jennie Shortridge and Megan Kruse will lead craft workshops on ways to build tension in your writing, metaphor, and making the setting feel real. They’ll also take participants through a fast-paced “Promp-O-Rama” to help generate new work.
Rhonda Hughes, publisher and editor of Hawthorne Books, will join Megan and Jennie in a panel discussion on the business side of publishing.
To complement these topics, there will also be sessions on yoga for writers, tips for reading in front of an audience, and tools to help you commit to the writing life.
On Saturday evening Megan and Jennie will read from their latest works and there will be an opportunity for workshop participants to read short pieces as well.
Even with this extensive line-up of activities, there’s still free time for participants to go for a hike, beach walk, or even take a nap after a lunch at local favorite, Bread & Ocean.
This weekend retreat is just $99, if you register by May 22nd. The price increases to $129 after that.
Included in the Writers’ Retreat will be a tote bag for you to carry your materials, plus a variety of offers and coupons from participating businesses in Manzanita.
