About This Event

The Women At Woodstock Writers Retreat welcomes bloggers, memoirists, fiction writers, poets, and nonfiction writers of all levels. Our content-rich, quiet, working session offers two tracks: Writers-In-Process and Emerging Writers. As with Women At Woodstock 2017 the weekend prior, we meet at Lifebridge Sanctuary in Woodstock, NY. The retreat starts on Thursday evening, October 19 and runs through Sunday night, October 22, with checkout on Monday morning, October 23. During your time at the Writers Retreat, you have your  choice of the Writers-In-Process track or the Emerging Writers track – it is up to you which you will choose.


You will start each day with a one-hour workshop taught by resident writing coach Linda Lowen and then the balance of the day will be open for you to write, think, and map out your writing future without interruption, surrounded by other like-minded women also pursuing their own creative quests.

Emerging Writers

You will join in an intensive full-morning writing workshop with resident writing coach Colleen Geraghty, where a safe space will be created for you to write and practice your developing skills with prompts, discussions, and short writing sessions.  In the afternoon, depending on the day, you will either attend an afternoon writing workshop or spend quiet time for uninterrupted writing on any prompt or project you choose.

Options For Everyone

For everyone at the Writing Retreat, there will be plenty of space and opportunity for private coaching, collaborative conversations, or total quiet – whatever it is that you crave. In the late afternoon we’ll gather for an Evening Salon of wine and cheese and readings, sharing what we wish from the day’s work. After dinner, we’ll continue with wine, chocolates, and conversation, or take advantage of the gorgeous “silent room” at the top of the sanctuary where you can write in peace into the wee hours if you wish.

All meals, snacks and beverages, including wine, are included in your registration fee.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
