Ossabaw Island Writers’ Retreat

2021 Spring Writer’s Retreat

Applications for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry at the Winter Retreat, March 12-17, 2021, are now open. Application deadline February 15, 2021. 

The 10th Annual Ossabaw Island Writers’ Winter Retreat is just twenty minutes from downtown Savannah, GA.. The retreat offers lectures, readings, workshops, and manuscript consultations.

The unspoiled beauty of Ossabaw Island has attracted writers, artists, and musicians to live on the island for short periods of reflection, research, and creativity in the mid-to-late 20th century. Ralph Ellison, Annie Dillard, and Alice Walker, are among those who have drawn inspiration from the island. Come join us for six days and five nights of writing, workshops and one-on-manuscript consultations with nationally recognized authors. Space is highly limited, therefore early application submissions are strongly recommended.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Final deadline February 15, 2021. Early applications highly recommended since there are limited openings (five-six per genre) and the retreat tends to fill quickly. 

They’re now offering $200 scholarship discounts for a limited number of university students, military personnel, and teachers. In addition, they are also offering Sisters in Crime members a $150 discount.
