Application Now Closed for 2018 Writers’ Retreat


The 2018 Writers’ Retreat application is due June 20!! Spend four days writing at the beach in the company of fellow writers at the Indian River Marina. The nearby beaches at Delaware Seashore State Park or the surrounding coastal wetlands will lend tranquility and intimacy to your writing retreat. In addition to blocks of uninterrupted writing time, there are workshops led by experts and no meals to cook!

Writers at all levels of experience are invited to apply. While newcomers will be given special consideration, previous attendees of the Division’s Writers Retreats are welcome to apply. A needs-based partial scholarship for new attendees may be available upon acceptance into the Retreat.

Workshops leaders are Sandra Beasley, award-winning author of four books of poetry and nonfiction, and Leslie Pietryzk, novelist and prize-winning short story writer. The workshops are designed for participants to enhance existing work, generate new work, explore craft, and learn from each other in a safe and supportive environment.
