Announcing Poets On the Coast: A Weekend Writing Retreat for Women 2014

Woman Imagining Herself at Poets on the Coast 2014

Yes, Kelli Russell Agodon and I are once again embarking on Poets on the Coast: A Writing Retreat for Women on September 5th - 7th at the Country Inn in La Conner, Washington. We are totally excited for our new location which is walking distance to cafes, shops, and the Northwest Museum of Art. La Conner is famous for the Skagit River Poetry Festival and the artists of the Northwest School. It is also an easy drive from Seattle and accessible from the Seattle Airport by express bus.

This year we are also offering a pre-conference workshop called Speaking Out: Poetry and Visual Art.

One of the oldest known images of a woman writing
We know that September 5th is exactly 10 months away but women have already been contacting us for the details of next year's conference. In fact, some poets have already sent in their registration forms.

Join Kelli Russell Agodon and Susan Rich for the fourth Poets on the Coast Weekend Writing Retreat September 5-7, 2014 at our new location in La Conner! We will gather to write, read and share our work inspired by the art, landscape, and creative energy around us.

This retreat has been designed for women writers of all levels, from beginning poets to well published. Sessions on creativity, generating work, publication, a Master Class workshop, and one-on-one mentoring are included as well as morning yoga. 

We only have a limited number of spaces available and they will be filled on a first-come basis.

The relaxing, warm Country Inn of La Conner is designed to nurture your writing self. This retreat will offer you a unique experience to explore your writing and creativity. Come spend a weekend with other women poets. Be ready to be nurtured, inspired and creative.
