Writing Retreat

Our Writing Retreat is not exactly a class but is an opportunity to meet and write in company with other beginning and experienced writers. Here we tap into our mutual creative energy. After introductions, we collect ideas in response to a starter prompt, then each person begins to draft a story, poem, memoir, argument or whatever. In small groups we read these diverse pieces and give each other non-critical reader responses.

As a safety precaution face masks must be worn in the classroom.
Bring your own writing materials, a sack lunch and beverages.

Lillian Cunningham taught English for many years at Windward Community College and is now retired from the classroom. 
The Writing Retreats began in the mid-1980s as a result of a frustration shared with some others, who said they wanted to write, but often got distracted by things like dirty laundry, hungry children, or flagging inspiration. So we agreed to retreat from competing demands for a few hours to write together without distractions. The idea caught on.
