Writers in the Round Retreat is a creative retreat for songwriters and poets. The spirit of the retreat is supportive, creative and collaborative. It is a time for stretching boundaries, cross genre inspiration, and fresh salt air. We welcome all levels of artistry. WITR offers daily classes, unstructured time for composition and collaboration, small group workshops, and nightly song and poetry swaps. Past retreats drew writers from NH, ME, RI, MA, NY, and CT. Past participants felt that the experience was unprecedented in sparking creativity, and in providing a safe learning environment. The instructors were supportive of risk taking and truly nurturing in a number of ways.
