I don’t know about you guys, but, I’ve always wanted to attend a writer’s retreat! I’ve spent many a summer vacation sequestered in a cabin, away from the hustle and bustle of big city life with family and loved ones. Although relaxing with family amid the ambiance of Mother Nature is always a welcome reprieve, it’s not quite how I’ve envisioned my “writer’s time”.
A Room of Her Own- a foundation for women writers and artists recently provided a listing of upcoming Writers Retreat Fellowships for 2013. Applications & fellowship-sponsorship information is included at their website. The site also offers women writers the opportunity to apply for their Artist-in Residence Fellowship with a deadline of February 1st. Below are Retreat fellowships being offered:
The Courage Fellowship

The Edna Payne Clarke Fellowship
for an African American Woman/Woman of the African Diaspora
The Spirited Woman Foundation Fellowship
for a woman who is changing the world one spirited woman step at a time
The 9 ¾ Fellowship
