Write on the French River

Option A: Standard Retreat

Small Groups with Instructors

Now is your chance to work closely with an award-winning writer and Instructor, in a small group (maximum of 7 participants) setting. Groups meet daily, each afternoon, for exercises, readings and discussions specific to your interests.

Groups in 2019 will focus on narrative. Helen Humphreys will examine fiction and nonfiction. Alison Pick will drill down into fiction (short and long). If you’re ready for adventures in creative nonfiction, come work with Andrew Westoll.

Will you have a chance to learn from all three instructors? Yes!

Each instructor also offers a Writer’s Craft Workshop open to everyone attending the retreat. Sample topics include: exploring poetry, developing characters, writing historical fiction, submitting your work for publication, leaping from lit mag to book deal, social media strategies and so on.

See the Retreat Schedule for a general overview of the weekly schedule.


Option B: Self-Guided Retreat
