About the Summer Campfire Cozy Writing Retreat

Please join us for the cozy retreat that started them all on Zoom, full of playful prompts, inspiration, and the deep pleasure of being with kindred spirits.

We'll play with 4-5 pre-writes and experiments, and write together to five brand new prompts. After our time together, you'll receive a packet of extra prompts and fun resources, as well as crowdsourced poem bits and bobs, all designed to energize your writing practice with a sense of playfulness and all the warmth that being with a welcoming poetry community can bring.

You are welcome to come and go, to dip in for a single session, or to stay for the whole time, and to participate in all or none of the brief social breaks. I'll be letting people in from the waiting room on the hour, while you chat in smaller groups connecting with other kindred spirit poets, grab a coffee, let the dog out, etc.!

Some sessions we'll write to music, and/or will use sound as part of the prompt, and others will be silent. *Please turn off your sound if you prefer. I'll give a visual 5 minute warning before we return, and the prompt will remain on screen as you write.

With every part of this, you'll be encouraged to do what works best for you and your muse! You'll be encouraged to take what you like and leave the rest.
