2017 Oaxaca Women’s Creative Writing + Yoga Retreat: Lifting Your Creative Voice

For the 7th year, women will gather in retreat for a week of creative writing, daily yoga, meditation and exploration in Oaxaca, Mexico. Our workshop is limited to 10 people. Will you be one of them? Some of us are novices. Others are published poets and writers. All are welcome and encouraged. If this is something you have always wanted to do, please do not hesitate. We fill quickly!

In 2017, we are based in Oaxaca City — a UNESCO world heritage site!

Arrive by Friday evening, March 3. The workshop ends Friday morning, March 10, 2017.  The workshop fee includes 7 nights lodging in a top-rated Bed & Breakfast Inn, all instruction, daily yoga, personal coaching sessions, daily breakfast and some lunches.  You might want to arrive a day early to settle in, avoid a late night arrival or missed connection.

    • Lois, we will be holding another Women’s Creative Writing and Yoga Retreat in 2018, March 2-9, 2018. I don’t have details yet, but stay tuned for more information by reading the website. I am sorry, I don’t have any art workshops scheduled. -Norma

  3. Norma: i will also be in oaxaca this year and would love to join the group as a “day student” i think wemet through ellen benson in oaxaca last winter. Any info that you can give would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Aloha! I am moving to Oaxaca for 1-2 years. I see I missed the deadline for the 2017 class, but I hope to connect with fellow writers. I will be managing an organic garden and teaching school children in the Sierra Sur mountains, and would love to devote more time to writing, as I’m applying (for the 2nd time) for an MFA. Would love to meet you and share :). Please keep me informed for the 2018 session!

  5. Hello! I live in Oaxaca and wish to know if you would consider my joining the group and participate in all activities except I would sleep at my own house in San Felipe del Agua.
    Let me know if this is a possibility,
    Thank you,
