Our September 2015 retreat attendees & Wide Open Writing staff. We spent the week writing, doing yoga, enjoying dinners (and wine) together and opening up our creativity.


Wide Open Writing is a place, a space and a philosophy.

A tool and a map that have no roads but are filled with icons that say, check this out and slow curve and scenic vista so don’t forget to spend some time looking here.

It’s a creative gathering place and a support mechanism –

a connect-up and a source.

A go-to international resource offering writing groups, coaching, retreats, and dependable support for those that write and those that want to write.

It’s a home base to expand from.  To try out new ideas.  To grow ourselves and each other.  We’re glad you’re here.
