2023 Writing Retreat

Our writing marathons, retreats, and workshops are spaces where we encourage each other to focus on ourselves and feed our inner writers. We welcome participants to explore, enjoy the wonderful cities and locales of Michigan, and to ever strengthen our loving and talented community.

Bay Pointe Inn Spend three days together with others working on your personal writing, relaxing, and finding inspiration at The Boathouse dwelling on Gun Lake. Arriving on Monday, writers can meet and greet, get settled, and enjoy provided snacks and beverages. Writing will begin together, with prompts provided, but also with freedom to enjoy quiet time alone with your work. Tuesday brings a full day of writing, gathering, and sharing, again, with plenty of opportunity to enjoy Gun Lake and the beautiful grounds. The retreat wraps up on Wednesday with writing, networking, and sharing until the 11 a.m. checkout.
