Writing Retreats for Women
Recognize, nurture and strengthen your writing style while crafting new work
Join author Susan Hagen for a rare opportunity to settle into a weekend of deep writing at St. Dorothy’s Rest and Retreat Center in Camp Meeker, California. Here you'll find plenty of time, space, and inspiration to strengthen your writing practice and explore your relationship to yourself and the natural world.

Whether you're a beginning or experienced writer, you'll learn simple techniques for effortless writing and share your stories in a supportive circle of women. Come write in community, walk among the trees, practice new writing techniques, sit on a mountain, eat delicious food, explore your inner life, breathe fresh air, hear other writers, push creative limits, listen to your own voice, sleep deeply, share stories, slow down, surprise yourself. All levels of writing experience are welcome.

The current retreat schedule is posted below. 
You can also choose to enroll in a weekly writing circle for women
or a one-day writing workshop for women
