Spend time with other writers at the

“It’s Spring!” writing retreat!

…a creative sharing experience with a small, supportive group of writers.


River Heron Writing Workshop’s first 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. Registration opens October 15. Space is limited to ten participants.

We offer the opportunity for anyone to get in touch with their inner writer while building confidence and craft in a supportive writing environment. We believe that everyone is a writer whether you believe that just yet or whether you currently maintain a writing practice.

This full day retreat workshop will follow the Amherst Writers and Artists method which endorses a generative writing and response practice that nurtures the creative spirit.

Whether you haven’t written in years or find yourself drawn to writing memoir, fiction, short story, or poetry, our writing retreat is for you. The day will include multiple writing sessions, mini-workshops, and lunch (and snacks!) 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 the River Heron Review retreat and receive a discount on your booking.
