We are planning optional activities to spark your motivation and creativity like writing exercises, getting started writing your memoir plus opportunities to share. We’ll have set meal times in the dining room and a meeting room and many areas on the grounds to sit and explore. The facility has a pool, a labyrinth, and rock art. See DesertRenewal.org for photos.

A schedule will be sent to registrants ahead of time. All activities are optional!

We have reserved 8 double occupancy rooms and 4 single rooms. Arrive between 3 and 5 on
Friday, leave after 1 pm on Sunday. Rooms are on a first-come, first-served basis. You can invite a spouse, friend or non-APW guest. Each needs to complete & return a form.

If you choose a double let us know if you have a person you want to share a room with or if you are willing to room with anyone who is seeking a roommate.
