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 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 $150 for members or $190 for nonmembers, 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.
