The Weekend Writers’ Retreat at The Oxbow

WRITE. RETREAT. REPEAT.

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

This February 8-9, 2020, join us for a weekend of invention, creation, revision, and workshop at the Oxbow Hotel in beautiful downtown Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

This year, we’re thrilled to host three writers-in-residence: fiction writer Christina Clancy, poet Dorothy Chan, and nonfiction writer/editor Mary Morgan. Hosted by B.J. Hollars.

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.  Profound thanks to this year’s sponsor: Friends of the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library.
