The First Annual Tinderbox Writers Retreat


For women only.

The First Annual Tinderbox Writers Retreat is an inspiring four-day celebration of story. Challenge your writing and find clarity for your voice in this oceanfront sanctuary for women writers... Take to the sea to write, create, make art and nourish your Creative Core!

Because we all have a journey to take, a truth to speak and a story to tell!

This retreat was created to nurture the creative spirit of women, to celebrate our stories through the written and spoken word. We’ll spend four transformative days, writing, reading, and sharing. You’ll be challenged to explore the deeper questions about what you want to say in your writing. We will begin our days with walks on the beach, nourish ourselves while cooking together, embrace solitude when we need a quiet moment, and form friendships that will last a lifetime. Your heart and your writing will grow through workshops and intimate sessions created to transform your writing.
