Join other writers at the Sylvia Beach Hotel on the Oregon Coast for a two-day writing retreat. Escape from your daily routine and immerse yourself in your writing while enjoying the vintage hotel, known for its author-themed rooms and relaxing library. Spend your mornings writing and your afternoons sharing your work and receiving positive, helpful feedback from the retreat facilitator and participants. 

Fee covers cost of workshop only. Participants are responsible for arranging their own food, lodging and transportation. It is recommended that participants check in on Friday, August 13.  All retreat participants, whether or not they are staying at the Sylvia Beach Hotel, will meet at the Sylvia Beach Hotel for breakfast on Saturday morning, before heading off to write. In the afternoon, everyone will gather in the hotel for a facilitated feedback session. Sunday also will include time to write and receive feedback.

The retreat will be facilitated by Nancy Woods, an experienced writer/editor and writing instructor/coach whose essays and articles have been read on Oregon Public Radio and published in the Oregonian, Portland Tribune, katu.com, Oregon Quarterly, Oregon Humanities, Northwest Palate, shortmemoir.com, Nervy Girl!, Raven Chronicles, Nostalgia and Zephyr.

    This is a very nice idea. Writing Retreat holidays in general are increasing in popularity, allowing individuals to explore their passions, usually in stunning surroundings with people who share a common interest, allowing them to network with others in their field and build lasting, mutually supportive relationships that outlive the retreat break and spill over into their everyday lives.
