Composed Residential Writing Retreat
Leave all your worries behind and spend an entire week focused just on you and your writing. Steal away to the Wingspread Retreat Center, where you'll connect with a group of amazing scholars and together, learn to overcome your internal writing barriers--the thoughts and feelings that undermine your productivity, steal your peace of mind, and rob you of the pleasures of your work.
Evidence Based Writing Coaching
Whether you attend Composed every year or this is your first time, our intensive coaching will transform your fears into calm, confident, powerful writing. 1st Timers learn our signature Pivot Point method for overcoming self-doubt, and Alums master the finer points of staying connected to your reflective practice. Check out the Curriculum tab for details!
Five Days of Dedicated Writing
pre & post-retreat support
Before the retreat, get 6 weeks of brief, actionable guidance to help you unplug from other responsibilities and get the most from your writing time. Then transition home with two weeks of training for integrating your most profound lessons.
Resource lists, scripts, and worksheets
Need to quickly remember the tools and techniques you learned at the retreat? You'll have everything you need at your fingertips, which will make it easier to implement what you learned at home.
Writing Spaces that Fit Your Needs
Community You Love & Trust
Six Days of Healthy, Delicious food
Six Serene Nights in a Single
Modern-luxe Guest rooms (all of them singles) have natural views and prairie style design that restore your energy for work and play. And don't sleep on the Guest House pantry: open 24/7 and stocked with complimentary fruit, coffee, and snacks.
Fitness & Fun at Your Fingertips
No need to miss a workout because you're away from home. Enjoy the fitness center's freeweights, yoga mats, treadmills, and exercise bikes. If you prefer the outdoors, check out Wingspread's well kept grounds or nearby Lake Michigan.
Accessibility & Inclusive Design
Wingspread's communal areas and two ADA compliant guestrooms include height, width, visual, auditory, incline, mobility, and movement features to make it a more welcoming space for all participants.
