Writing Table Retreat

With Eileen Campbell-Reed

October 10 - 13, 2024

Join us at the Writing Table in person. Enjoy the beauty of Kirkridge in the autumn and ample structured and unstructured time to inspire a rhythm of writing and rest. We invite you to bring a writing project with you or dream up a new one at this retreat. The retreat includes short teaching sessions about writing craft and habits, daily time for writing, and evening sessions for sharing brief excerpts of your work. Individual coaching spots will be available on a limited basis. After registration you will receive an email to schedule individual time with retreat facilitator and coach, Rev. Dr. Eileen Campbell-Reed if you desire. Individual sessions are an additional cost and discounted for retreat participants.

Newcomers and experienced writers are all welcome.
