The Franciscan Spirituality Center will offer writers an opportunity to delve into the heart of words that heal and writing that transforms during a July 18 to 21 retreat, “Into the Heart of the Word,” with Theresa Washburn.
“Writing, be it journaling, novel writing, memoir or poetry, allows us to release feelings and thoughts on the page,” says Washburn, who has been using writing about personal growth for the past 25 years.
The retreat is open to anyone who enjoys the written word. Participants will learn how to use writing as a tool for positive change and explore the how and why of the techniques that lead to more authentic writing with a stronger voice. Bring a favorite poem or a piece that inspires you.
“Into the Heart of the Word” starts at 9 a.m. July 18 and continues through 1 p.m. July 21. Cost for the full retreat is $275, which includes all meals and a bedroom stay; or $175 for commuters, who receive lunch. Registration deadline is June 18.

The Franciscan Spirituality Center welcomes people of all faith backgrounds.
