Welcome to The Priory Writers’ Retreat—a vibrant, inclusive, and collaborative writing community in the heart of Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley.  

 Originally established as a monastery for Benedictine nuns in 1964, today The Priory serves as an ideal location for creativity to flourish.  Situated on 120 wooded acres just miles from downtown Eau Claire, the property features 48 single-occupancy, air-conditioned rooms, several common areas, and no shortage of natural splendor. 

Join us for three days of creation, collaboration, and celebration.
