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 a 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. Meals and snacks will be provided.

If you are a nonmember who can't afford the retreat rate, we have The Leonore Peyser Davis Writing Fellowship available, and it provides a free retreat to someone in financial need.
