Traveling the Writer’s Journey Together

Women’s Writing Retreats

Imagine how it would feel to be released from mundane responsibilities, daily routines, and structured days, so you could focus on you and the stories inside that are longing to be explored and told.


  • solitude and privacy to partner with your muse
  • community to meet other writers traveling a similar path
  • activities and excursions to spark your creativity
  • writing prompts, exercises, and games to help you improve your craft and also be fun

Though each retreat has a different theme and venue, these are the foundations of our women’s writing retreats.

Due to COVID-19, in-person retreats are currently suspended. 

Check back often for updates on both live and virtual events.

Story Camp

Women Writing for Change Retreat

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.


~ Maya Angelou

With us, you’ll experience the perfect balance of inspiration and activities that stir your creative juices and a restful, restorative atmosphere to unwind and destress.

You’ll enjoy inspiring literary explorations and experiential writing.

Quiet time will allow you to reconnect with your inner voice and explore the desires of your soul.

You’ll experience the sheer joy of putting words on the page.

Each retreat is hosted and facilitated by women who are also writers and, thus, understand the unique needs of both new and experienced authors.

Supportive and trusted guidance is always provided.

Our retreats offer an escape from the voices of others in order to hear your own—and to hear the stories within, both personal and fictional, which are only yours to tell.

Opening our hearts to the stories asking to be told requires a safe atmosphere, free from judgment and expectations—you are assured of this among our groups.

At the retreat, you’ll join an uplifting community of like-minded women writers, learning and growing together.

Most women come to the retreat not knowing other attendees, but leave with strong and lasting connections to one another.

I was so impressed with the talents of every single person around the writer’s table and most especially the energy that our retreat brought to us as individuals and as a group. I’m so excited that we’re all starting the year with renewed energy to make our goals a reality . . . getting together and feeding off of one another’s ideas, talents, and energies has made a significant and exciting difference for me. I’m rolling along, slowly but surely, working hard to maintain my goal of spending time with my story every single day. I do feel very confident that I can make this happen.”
