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 meetup group, now the Island Writers Club, was organized in 2009, to help us escape for a weekend or more. We'll feature, sponsor, co-sponsor and present writing retreats that offer getaway options.  Meetup Organizer and Writing Coach Steve FitzGerald leads both our small-group retreats and private, individual retreats. If you're most interested in scheduling a private (not a group) retreat, contact Steve by clicking the envelope below the Meetup organizer's photo or visit

We hope you'll join our meetup group today!

IMPORTANT: There are currently no dues to join 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 and cover costs.
