Amherst: April 15 Mini Retreat

Set aside a Sunday afternoon to water the words.

Unfurl Writing Retreat
Early spring in the Pioneer Valley is some kind of magic. Sap flowing, snowdrops and forsythia blooming, and the first buds and blossoms emerging after months of sleep — if unfurling belongs to any season, it’s this one.

So, too, with ourselves and our writing.

Winter calls us to curl up tight, hunker down, and get quiet. It may seem that nothing is happening.  Come wake up and water the words with the gentle rains of time, attention, and community.

Has your writing life been hibernating?

This mini retreat will stir it awake. Come enjoy a delicious catered lunch made by Emily Armstrong of Cucina Volante, who attended the very first Unfurl retreat in 2015! Savor the sound of pens moving across paper and soak up one other’s unconditional encouragement. You don’t have to be good; just come as you are and let the words unfurl.

“Jena’s gentle strength is the perfect support for a group of writers. Her obvious joy in the writing process is contagious. I loved my Unfurl experience!” ~ Nancy Vala
