OFFERINGS

Writing is a solitary endeavor, but you don’t need to do it alone.

 

Sometimes our inspiration comes in solitude, sometimes

in community.

 

Writers in Residence (WIR) events take place at the Whitehawk Ranch and provide a combination of those two experiences. The Writers’ Salon offers multiple WIR per calendar year to meet the needs of your creative process.

 

Spring 2022: Each session includes accommodations and breakfast and dinner each day, lots of generative time (solitary or group), a daily craft-talk during dinner, community discussion, and group sharing and reading each evening. In the May 2022 WIR Event, offered at a special introductory rate, participants receive an included one-on-one intensive with Sands Hall as a bonus for reserving a 5-night commitment.

 

Limited to six participants per session, the May 2022 WIR event is anchored at the Whitehawk Lodge in Clio, CA. Additional one-on-one time with the WIR is available as an a la carte option by appointment.

 

The full session commitment is preferable, but shorter stays are welcome, with a minimum of two nights.

Introductory rate for the May Event of $275 per night/per person based on single occupancy, includes lodging, 2 meals per day (breakfast and dinner), daily 3-hour WIR Salon Session. Proof of current COVID vaccine required for registration.

Autumn brings us two sessions with a variety of Writers in Residence. Each session includes accommodations and breakfast and dinner each day, lots of generative time (solitary or group), a daily craft-talk during dinner, community discussion, and group sharing and reading each evening. October events include a one-on-one intensive with the Writer in Residence bonus for reserving a 5-night commitment.

 

October events are limited to eight participants per session, and are anchored at the Whitehawk Lodge in Clio, CA. Additional one-on-one time with the WIR is available as an a la carte option by appointment. Competitively priced at $355/night for two Writers in Residence, luxury lodging and two meals a day, October in the Sierra is a dream come true. Full session attendance is encouraged with a minimum of four-days.

Early bird discounts available. Contact The Writers’ Salon at anne@thewriterssalon.net for information and application.
