The Greenfire® January Mini-Retreat is a virtual (online) weekend writing retreat. You can attend either or both days—your choice!

The Greenfire January Mini-Retreat is a different kind of writing retreat. It combines museum, heritage site, and other online exhibits with prompts, exercises, and ideas to stoke your creative fire and support your writing.

About a week before our retreat days, you’ll receive links and information to inspiring, intriguing, and thought-provoking online exhibits to explore ahead of time. Past years, we’ve visited (virtually) the Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam), Emily Dickinson Museum (Amherst, MA), the Nutshell Studies (Smithsonian, et al), The Night Watch (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), an underwater sculpture park, gems and geology exhibits, and more. This year takes us to far flung sites including Japan, the British Isles, and Colorado’s high country, with stories that span millennia.

The day before each retreat day, you’ll receive an email with writing prompts and other ideas to play with during the retreat.

On each retreat day, we gather as a group on Zoom for 2 sessions: one longer meeting and writing session earlier in the day, and a shorter one later in the day, with a long break in between. Each session includes time to write, share, create, explore, and write some more in a warm, welcoming community. You’ll have time for writing and other creative activities during both sessions as well as on your own between sessions.

If you’ve been debating whether to hibernate or write, do both! Come to the Greenfire January Mini-Retreat in your PJs. Stay wrapped in a blanket, sipping tea by the fire, all while visiting online exhibits, recharging your creativity, and writing!

This retreat is open to all levels of writers and all genres. Group size is limited. (If registration is closed, contact us to be added to the waiting list.)
