Use your Outdoor Voice…!


Join us this summer for Outdoor Voice, a series of three day-long Creative Writing Retreats in the Pioneer Valley.

Experiment with writing and sense of place – in a protected wilderness area, on a hillside high above the Connecticut River, and in other nearby sites that are worlds away from our everyday lives.

Beginners and experienced writers welcome – come and enjoy a full day of Slow Travel through writing.
