Self-Guided Writing Retreat

While you’re staying at the Dreamers Writing Farm, participate in a self-guided writing retreat focused on writing to heal…

Find Your Words, Find Your Way

Embark on a self-guided writing retreat that not only nurtures your creative talents but also promotes personal growth and healing. Decades of research have uncovered the therapeutic benefits of writing, and regular engagement in “writing to heal” has been linked with improved self-esteem, a sense of calm, and a richer appreciation for a life well-lived.

During your stay at the Dreamers Writing Farm, take some time to explore your unique story. Our self-guided writing retreat is designed to explore themes of healing connected to your lived experience. Using creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry and journaling, you will:

Master the art of re-storying self

Dive into the world of expressive writing

Uncover the secrets of the “transformation-through-writing model”

Healing writing can help you find your authentic writing voice, making you both a healthier person and a better writer. Do you want to learn how to reflect inward and unlock what you keep hidden, even from yourself? Find out how expressive writing leads to deeper self-acceptance and healing.
