Weekend Writers’ Retreat at The Oxbow



Check-in as a dreamer.  Check-out as a writer.


Our Weekend Writers’ Retreat is currently sold out! Want to be put on the waitlist? Drop us a note at chippewavalleywritersguild@gmail.com!

On February 2-3, 2019, join us for a weekend of invention, creation, revision, and workshop in the Oxbow Hotel, and its restaurant, The Lakely, in beautiful downtown Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Writers-in-residence will lead participants through a series of craft talks, writing exercises, and mini workshops designed to assist each writer toward crafting a piece to read at our Saturday night reading in the Oxbow Gallery. No need to bring any previously written work! Just come with your paper, pen, and passion.  

Lodging, instruction, live jazz, breakfast, lunch, coffee, snacks, and drink ticket included.  Open to all writers of all levels.  

This year, we’re thrilled to host three writers-in-residence: (from left to right) fiction writer A. Rafael Johnson, poet Gretchen Marquette, nonfiction writer John Hildebrand.
