If you're a writer or anyone working on a long project, you probably know how hard it is to find the undivided time to work on the thing, between taking care of all the people you’re supposed to take care of, doing other jobs to make ends meet, and simply feeding yourself properly! Though retreats and artist residencies are ideal, they aren’t always possible when life is hectic (and they don’t necessarily come cheap).

This spring, join us at The Ruby for our first weekend writing/making retreat — a chance to “get away” while staying in San Francisco. Let The Ruby take care of you while you work on your project! The Ruby will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All meals and snacks will be provided (and they will be good!); we’ll have occasional stretching/exercise breaks, too.

We're looking into providing or facilitating off-site childcare. Please help us plan for the weekend by filling out this form:

If you aren't a member, but are interested in joining, please email and tell us a little bit about what you're working on; we'd love to hear from you.
