2013 Retreat for Women Writers
Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico
"To let oneself be carried on passively is unthinkable." –Virginia Woolf
Since 2003, the AROHO Retreat has gathered women writers to exchange ideas and develop their craft in New Mexico’s magnificent high desert, nourishing a unique esprit de corps. Nestled in the red rocks of Ghost Ranch that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe, AROHO Retreat participants enjoy abundant time to write, reflect, and establish critical and often life-changing alliances with other professional women writers.
In a series of large and small group collaborative gatherings, featured writers and participants pose questions, make connections, unearth inspiration, and discover new realms and paths for their creativity. Writers at AROHO Retreats, published or not, are women accustomed to taking intellectual and artistic risks, hungry for the company of peers who do the same.

The organic and evolving AROHO Retreat program is best defined as co-created by the women who participate, with utmost respect for the individual’s capacity to challenge herself and others, and to mold each day to her needs. Many participants will submit proposals and contribute to programming, and all participants are encouraged to settle into the schedule which most benefits their writing and personal and professional progress.

AROHO is proud to offer numerous fellowships made possible by friends and supporters of AROHO. AROHO Fellowships and artist-in-residence opportunities are a distinct honor, and are reserved for applicants who best demonstrate their merit, need, and desire to uniquely impact the gathering.

The fellowship, artist-in-residence (AIR), and proposal window will close February 1, 2013. The general application window will remain open until available positions are filled. To increase your chances of acceptance, please apply as early as possible. Be part of a transformational collective, an ever-expanding dynamic sphere of women who possess the generosity and courage to create.
