OCTOBER 10-13TH, 2019

The San Francisco Women’s Writer’s Camp is a nurturing and energizing environment for women writers at all stages in their writing journey. At camp, you’ll discover new ways to prioritize your wellness as a writer, promote your work, and build lasting creative community. Our time together will include individual consultation, writing and revising, workshopping, and a reading. You will leave camp with new pages, new community, and a more intimate sense of the writer that you are.

Camp Founders and Session Leaders: 

Charlene Allen and  Andrea Canaan developed The San Francisco Women’s Writer’s Camp to encourage wellness, enable direct critical feedback, and enrich our vital writing relationship as women writers. 
Charlene is a creative consultant and writer specializing in children’s fiction. Andrea is a therapist and writer specializing in creative non-fiction and fiction. We find that sharing our work and creative process brings joy, dispels isolation and the fear of rejection, and brings our writing to life. We have convened Writer’s Camp in Brooklyn, New York, Granby, Massachusetts, Atlanta, Georgia, and San Francisco, California.
