Saturday June 4, 9am-3pm and Sunday June 5, 9am-1pm.


Dedicate two days to your writing and/or art! Gather supplies, snacks, and your art or manuscript. Head on over to the Loft or find a cozy spot at home. It's time for a writing retreat!


Led by Laura Wollett, Sandy Budiansky, and Heather Kelly, we'll set goals, break into groups to share progress and swap ideas, and of course, write and create. The goal of the retreat is simple -- write and connect with other writers and creators. Join us in person at the Loft or via Zoom.


Come for both days or just one!
