Writer in the House

The Writer in the House program brings talented mentors to the Colonyhouse on the Oregon Coast for a series of weekend writing retreats.

Each weekend, a well-known writer will share the Colonyhouse, a historic log cabin on the Oregon Coast at Rockaway Beach, with OWC members and will be available for personally tailored hour-long consultations with each retreat participant.

In addition to plenty of time to write over the weekend, an optional Saturday night sharing allows participants to workshop their writing in a relaxed atmosphere with the mentor and other retreat-goers.

The cost of the retreats is $190 for members or $230 for non-members, which includes shared lodging at the Colonyhouse. Participants are expected to provide their own food and bedding. A communal meal may be arranged with the consent of the mentor.
