Writers Retreat

Your Word is My Delight: A Catholic Writers Retreat

Do you need time away to finish or start a manuscript? Work on that proposal? Organize your writing project? Finish work to meet your editor’s deadline?

This retreat, offered every other year, is popular because it is a true writers retreat, offering you abundant time to work and time to critique with other Catholic writers.

Our fourth retreat is coming up in 2017!

2017 Writers Retreat

Come! Delight in God's Word and Sacrament. Delight in writing in a beautiful and serene retreat setting. Delight in meeting and sharing with other Catholic writers and publishers.
