Writelines Creative Writing Workshop

September 5 - 9, 2016

Writelines Conference Profile

What is the best way to judge a writing retreat? Answer: You leave uplifted, wanting to write when you get home, and ready to shout to the world “I am a writer.” This will be our 11th year hosting this writing retreat on Star Island, and for the last ten years we have unfailingly produced that response from attendees. Come to the island during the quiet time of the year to write, watch magnificent sunsets, write, relax, discuss the craft of writing, and write some more. Simply bring with you several pens, at least one blank journal or notebook, and a mind ready to explore parts of itself you didn’t even know were hidden there. The facilitator will take care of the rest. She creates a safe environment and carefully chosen prompts and fun excursions on the island. You may write new material or scenes from a work in progress. Writers of all skill levels and genres are welcome and will be challenged to the next level of writing.
