Writing is hard.
Don't go it alone.
Wordsmith Workshops' retreats combine the best aspects of a writing retreat -- ample quiet time to work, think and recharge -- with the instruction, critique, and camaraderie of an intimate writers' workshop.
You'll return home with lots of new words under your belt, renewed inspiration, a supportive new community of writing friends and mentors, and a deeper understanding of your manuscript and how to take it to the next level!
I cannot sing praises loudly enough! This retreat was exactly what I needed to get my head down and focus on my manuscript. It provided the space I needed to think and create and just write. Beth and Cristin are a joy to learn from!

For writers at all stages
We welcome everyone and have hosted those just starting their first novel to published authors. The retreats are designed to be the most beneficial to those who are seriously pursuing publication with middle-grade or young adult novels, but anyone who wants to take their writing to the next level, meet like-minded people, and have a good time is welcome!
