Oracle Retreat for Writers

The Oracle Retreat for Writers is a 3-day creative writing intensive located in the beautiful San Pedro Valley, 30 miles north of Tucson, Arizona.  The retreat is intended for writers of all genres of creative writing – poetry, prose and creative nonfiction – and for all levels of experience, from novice to advanced practitioners.

Our experienced faculty will conduct exploratory writing sessions and workshops with topics as varied as Life Writing/Dream Writing, Writing Lyrics in the Natural World, and Hybrid Innovations.  Nightly readings around the bonfire, creative pow-wows by the pool, time in your own casita or patio to recharge the muse.

Surrounded by state parks and nature preserves, the C.O.D. Ranch includes private or shared rooms, tables and chairs in nooks and crannies, porches and patios with mountain views, nature trails, a pool and hot tub, and three delicious chef prepared meals a day.
