2011 Writers’ Retreat
“A Dream of Our Own: Women Writing New, Women Writing True”
August 8—14, 2011
"Solitude, competitiveness and grief are the unavoidable lot of a writer only when there is no organization or network to which she can turn."—Toni Morrison
What We Know:
Powerful things happen when creative, dynamic AROHO women meet.
The high desert of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch is a place of unique inspiration and energy.
Taking time apart for oneself and one’s work fosters unique artistic transformation, fresh work, and startling insight.
Sometimes writers get stuck. Sometimes we need a shake, a shove, a push. Sometimes just an encouraging word.
What We Propose: Shake it up, together!
Consider joining an honest discussion among craftmasters in a thriving literary community of eighty women. Everyone speaks. Everyone listens. The AROHO Retreat is designed not around the needs of students, but from the passions of peers. AROHO women are building this retreat with their enthusiasm and concerns, and you could be part of it all.
At the 2011 AROHO Retreat we will: Gather. Engage. Write. Transform.
What Makes this Retreat Different from Other Retreats:
Not for beginning writers, but for writers established in their craft, widely published or not yet published at all
Gatherings designed not so much to teach you what you don’t know (you already know a lot), but to discover new connections, forge new paths, and offer you plenty of time to write
The unique red rocks of Ghost Ranch and the creative energy of eighty women who make the desert their studio for a week
Fellowships are available to help offset costs.
