Garibaldi, Oregon Workshop and Retreat

Three night stay in Garibaldi, Oregon

Do you find you begin projects but don’t finish? Are you having trouble getting to the root of what you want to say? Have you given up?


We can work through this together and get you back on track.


Join Jonna Ivin in Garibaldi, Oregon for a three-night stay in a waterfront house where we will write, discuss, share feedback and support each other in our writing goals. There will also be plenty of time for solo writing or a relaxing walk on the beach.


Each participant can submit up to 5000 words for a one-on-one session with Jonna to discuss any troubles you are having, receive personalized feedback or have a brainstorming session if you are feeling stuck. Discuss any problem areas with your writing. Find your voice.
