Writers retreat set for Volcano
Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island is more than a fascinating source of flowing lava and seismic activity; it’s also a vessel of endless creative inspiration, according to Hawaiian folklore.
Volcano Art Center invites you to experience it all this summer by attending the 15th Annual Weekend Writer’s Retreat: Writing for Power, Heart and Vision beginning Thursday, June 20.
To commemorate this special anniversary milestone, retreat facilitator and published author Tom Peek has agreed to host an extended three-day weekend at Kilauea Military Camp inside the scenic and serene Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It’s as close to the source as you can get.
Writing for Power, Heart and Vision is specifically designed to help writers in all stages and genres improve the emotion, depth and potency of their work. Participants are led through a series of practice exercises, group discussions and stimulating sessions to help “free the writer within,” according to Peek. This year, the extended weekend will allow for more independent writing time and additional lessons.
Cost of attendance is $375, with eight meals and all supplies included. To maintain an intimate feel and ensure personal attention for all, the retreat is restricted to 12 attendees. Three private rooms and four shared rooms are available; please call for rates. Financial aid applications are due by May 31.
