Hi Caryl, nice to meet a fellow Bay Area writer.

Your question remind me of a 11/2-weeklong stint I did years ago at a Benedictine nunnery near my then-home in Northern Virginia. The nuns welcomed me and gave me food and a place to stay while I worked on a creative project. I am not Catholic, but I was welcomed. There were no other writers, but I found the place restive and supportive of my creative work. I'm not sure if this option sounds like a match for you, but it may be worth investigating.

Hello Maria,

I am a new writer working on a spiritual autobiography. I am seeking an experience in between a writing retreat and intensive. Specifically, I'm looking for a place to go for 5-7 weeks to work uninterrupted on a project. I would ideally like to be in community with other writers. Are you aware of writing retreat centers that offer a self-paced experience, i.e. not classes or workshops, that include room and board? I live in the Bay Area but could travel.

I would appreciate any advice or direction you or your readers could offer on this subject!
Thank you,
Caryl Englehorn
