2016 Writing in the Dark Retreat

Saturday, February 20th from 9am-4pm in Pioneer Hall (Pioneer Park, 2300 Airport Way)

Treat yourself to an all-day workshop with Jill Osier, which is designed to help you generate new material, gather ideas, and rejuvenate your writing. The retreat includes breakfast and lunch, literary camaraderie and a delightful day of stimulating discussion. Bring a notebook, a sample of some of your favorite work (poetry or prose) and your sense of inventiveness. The day will culminate with a reading of the work created during the retreat.

Spend a day looking at the world differently through your writing. Generate new work, gather ideas, and consider new projects. Feel free to bring work in progress (poetry or prose) that you would like to look at with new eyes.

  1. Do we have a location yet for Writing in the Dark? And I heard Sean Hill will be the Guest Artist. Is this true?
