ABOUT THE RETREAT

Why JJWWR?

There are plenty of brick-and-mortar, as well as online writing workshops. However, we feel the James Jones Writers Workshop Retreat provides a truly unique experience that leaves writers feeling inspired and energized. Our renowned faculty of published authors, editors, and creative writing professors are committed to providing insightful and constructive feedback to our writers. Additionally, we aim to develop a sense of community among cohorts so the relationships made extend beyond workshop.
