“It’s Spring!” Retreat

River Heron Writing Workshop’s “It’s Spring” full day writing retreat is scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the Fox & Hound Bed & Breakfast located in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The workshop begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. and runs until 3:30 p.m.

Whether you haven’t written in years or you write regularly, the “It’s Spring!”retreat will offer you the time to focus on writing. Our cross-genre approach inspires writers to work in new and familiar genres. You will be certain of producing, and receiving feedback on, a series of first draft pieces during your time with us.

Tap into your inner writer while furthering your sense of confidence and craft in River Heron’s supportive writing environment. We believe that everyone who writes is a writer. Whether you have an established practice or you are seeking ways to begin one, our “It’s Spring!” retreat will afford you the time and opportunity to immerse yourself in writing. In addition, you will meet other writers and become part of a growing writing community.

Like all of our other workshops, the writing and feedback sessions offered during this retreat will follow the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) methods. AWA endorses a generative writing and response approach that nurtures the creative spirit. We know you will find our writing and feedback sessions structured, productive, and encouraging.

The day will include multiple writing sessions, mini-workshops, and lunch in a relaxing and scenic Bucks County area location. If you decide to make a weekend of it and book a room at the Fox & Hound, mention River Heron and receive a discount on your booking.
