Spring Artists & Writers’ Weekend at St. Dorothy’s Rest, Camp Meeker, CA


Spring Artists & Writers’ Weekend at St. Dorothy’s Rest, Camp Meeker, CA

When: Friday-Monday, January 16-19, 2024 (Friday dinner-Monday lunch)

Bring your materials and join fellow creatives for a weekend in the serene redwoods.  You’ll find your good workspace in historic buildings, in the chapel, and outdoors for spacious daylight hours to work on whatever you’d like – writing a song or writing the next chapter of a novel, painting an icon or a watercolor, beginning or continuing the project you’ve had in mind for a while, or trying your hand at something new.

In the evenings, this emergent community of old friends and new will gather to share fresh, unfinished work with the retreat’s long-standing listening and feedback practice that inspires many to share new work in progress for discerning, encouraging, and inspiring responses.

Each year’s mix of old-timers and newcomers includes both seasoned artists and people who’ve come to risk trying something new. Together we’ll make three peaceful, powerful days devoted to your creative work, and three joyful evenings seeing, hearing, and sharing our work.
