Women's Writing Retreat – August 21-27

Women's Writing Retreat

Join Wide Open Writing for 7 days on Whitehead Island, Maine, August 21-27 (another Women's Writing Retreat is being held Aug 14-19). We'll gather in what was once the lighthouse keepers home to write and relax and explore this gem of an island off the Maine Coast. Our home's library holds juicy news of this Maine island's history and the surrounding grounds provide spacious venues for yoga, hiking, dancing, and whatever else you could possibly want to do. Rooms are spacious with en suite bathroom and ocean views. Three singles rooms and four double rooms are available.

For anyone who has yearned for the sounds and tastes and smells of the Maine Coast. For anyone who has wanted to explore a lighthouse. For anyone who wants to drink coffee, reflect and write from an Adirondack chair perched on the porch of a classic New England Lighthouse on the Atlantic shores. For anyone who thinks morning yoga, writing, yummy food, good company, walking and swimming and kayaking and laughing and crying and more writing is what you've been seeking – well this is the writing retreat for you.

We'll be serious with our writing and playful with ourselves and each other. We'll arrive by boat for the week with permission and encouragement to settle and absorb the natural beauty of our surroundings. Wide Open Writers flourish together in this environment and sharing becomes a natural gift in the process. We gain from each other as well as this drop-dead gorgeous place.
