Writing Retreats & Writing Rooms

laptop, notebook and coffee cup on a tableWriting Retreats & Writing Rooms are spaces where writing can happen in the company of others - and you might be surprised at how much of a difference that can make. Sometimes it’s easier to be creative and inspired when you have other people around!

Experienced Writing Instructors will be working on their own writing projects (everybody's writing!), and they’ll also be available to help out with your writing in progress, whether that involves informal group instruction or one-on-one assistance.

What's the Difference? 

What's the difference between a Writing Retreat and a Writing Room you may ask? Where they're held! Come "retreat" to the RGASC, or visit our designated writing "room".
