Writing Day Retreats

Saturdays, 10:00 AM-5:00 PM, PT

(Note: All writing days are currently via Zoom. We’ll resume in-person Writing Days at Beverly Lake, with a virtual option, as soon as it is safe to do so)

Bring your Work in Progress or idea and be ready for a life-changing day. We begin with a workshop, then break for lunch (on your own), followed by personal writing time. Sharing at the end, for those who wish it!


“Out of the Trash Compactor–Surviving the Messy Middle when You Want to Give Up”

Saturday, July 25, 10:00-5:00

After the rush of the early chapters, you often come to a spot where it feels like the walls are closing in.  On this retreat, we will find techniques for navigating scenes in Act II of your book, and we’ll explore ways to keep going, even if you feel ready to quit. 

(This retreat is also part of Labyrinth.)
