MORE ABOUT RETREAT BETWEEN THE LINES
Our core philosophy at Retreat Between the Lines is to get every writer the same chance to improve their craft as any other. We strive to open doors to education and training held closed for whatever reason.
Don’t like crowds? Retreat alone while still having the chance to connect with others.
Don’t want to travel? Stay home.
Have trouble with childcare? Watch them play while listening to a lecture.
Have other issues with attention, proximity, or other reason organized events don’t work for you? Stay where you’re comfortable and still learn, connect, and grow.

The short answer: I made the retreat I wanted to attend.
Each retreat is structured specifically for those with executive function issues. Whether that's from a neurodivergent diagnosis or the product of a busy life, these methods will help.
All writing sessions follow the Pomodoro technique with 25-minute sections divided by 5-minute rest breaks.
These breaks will be provided visually only so as to not interrupt those focusing, or hyper-focusing, on their work.
At the end of the full session time, auditory and visual cues will alert the retreat goer to the impending change of events.
All lectures will consist of five 8-minute sections divided by either visual, topical, or position changes with a 5-minute stretch section between the third and fourth sections.
Each lecture will also be taught by an expert in that field.
