The Writers' Salon
A Boutique Enclave to Enhance the Writer in All of Us
Join us in 2022
WRITING IS A SOLITARY ENDEAVOR.
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE
What is the benefit of The Writers’ Salon?
The Writers’ Salon is different than many writer’s groups and programs. The Writers’ Salon is a boutique enclave in the writing community intended to fortify and support writers in all stages of their writing life. Intellectually rigorous and emotionally supportive, The Writers’ Salon is not mired down by ego or rigid curriculum. The Writers’ Salon provides a platform of support, community, and wisdom of all who participate, including published authors, artisan writers, and novice storytellers. If you are serious about getting your words on the page, and seek a collective for support, inspiration, and musing, The Writers’ Salon is worth a look. Options for virtual and residential retreats, pressure free open mike events via Zoom, Writers’ in Residence events, a roster and introductions to a variety of writing coaches, mentors, and craft workshops, solitary or group generative time, administrative and logistical support for proposal submissions, transcription, proof reading, and initial editing, cuisine, artisan cocktails, craft coffee, or formal tea service in the afternoon, we have what it takes to help you bring your best product to the page, and to be comfortable while you are doing it.

WHAT WE DO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE
We create bespoke writing, artistic and energetic experiences to enhance the generation of art and the experience of creation and reflection.
A boutique enclave and concierge to cultivate and support the artist and writer in all of us.
What’s been in the way? Lack of time? Need to escape? Need the right kind of nurturing environment? Need skills, support and wisdom -- mentorship?
Here, at Writers’ Salon events, you’ll find an enclave where you’ll receive mentoring and support -- and you can just focus on creation and reflection.
The Writers’ Salon provides a hybrid experience of wisdom, experience, innovation, and fresh faces to embrace cultural conversations and artisan writers.
Our residential location at Whitehawk Ranch in the Lost Sierras is a naturally rich and fertile environment for professional and novice writers to continue to develop projects, find inspiration, and participate in the community of writers.
Online or in residence, our roster of published professional writing coaches and authors, create the community you need to advance your writing and enhance your personal pollination in the literary world as an artist.
Whether you are just getting started or are a published author looking for immersion or the elusive catalyst to bring your project to completion, The Writers’ Salon is a forum to optimize your voice.
The Writers’ Salon offers one-on-one, group, and community platforms to encourage and inspire.
Writing can be lonely, but it doesn’t have to be with The Writers’ Salon. Find your community, large or small, introvert or extrovert, support or innovation.
The Writers’ Salon can help with our Writer in Residence Program, connections and introductions to writing coaches, mentors and agents for your project, online community and open mike events, submission service administration, proof reading and transcription services.
The Writers’ Salon not only provides a place to write and incubate on a project, but also a community of connections to help network and promote and fortify your writing and expression.
The Writers’ Salon offers four weeks of residency opportunities per year which include a round table dinner each evening for craft talk discussions and community building.
Early spring and summer sessions are each one week, and the autumn offers a two-week session to cultivate a more intense writing immersion experience.
In addition to the nightly salon conversations, we offer ala carte options for intensive one-on-one sessions with the Writer in Residence, serenity and self-care while writing, small group sessions, and nature release, reboot, and refresh activities (hiking/biking/rafting/fishing/recreation).
