As writers, we sometimes need to get away from the everyday grind that monopolizes our time, energy and creativity. It helps if we can escape the "rat race" and rediscover the craft and pleasure of our writing in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.

The Ohio Writers Retreats membership group was organized in 2009, to help us escape for a weekend and sometimes just a day. We'll feature, sponsor, co-sponsor and present writing retreats that offer getaway options closer to home, here in Ohio. The group will return to the island for an Autumn retreat the first weekend of October 2014.  Members interested in scheduling an island or other "day trip" with a writing coach (instead of the weekend group retreat), should contact Steve FitzGerald by clicking the envelope below the organizer's photo.

To be notified by email, join our meetup group today!

IMPORTANT: There are currently no membership dues to become a member of the Ohio Writers Retreats group, now known as the Island Writers Club, but the retreats we sponsor, co-sponsor or feature will require that you reserve in advance and pay a fee to attend.
