Why try to find the extra time or money to scoot away for a summer writing retreat when you can get the same or more accomplished at a retreat here in Westport? At the Fairfield County Writers’ Studio, your retreat includes one, two, three or four days working on a project without distractions, interruptions or lessons. We supply the space, the bagels, the coffee, the instructions and the community. You share your writing hopes and intentions for the day, then work on your piece/s as you see fit.
Mondays, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST; Begins September 20, 2021. NOTE: This workshop takes place via Zoom.
