“Without great solitude no serious work is possible.” Picasso
Whether you’re starting a new creative project, working on an old one, or somewhere in between, a “workation” at the Whidbey Island Writer’s Refuge will help you finish it. You’ll be surprised at how much you get done when you retreat from the demands of everyday life and spend time in solitude to focus entirely on your work.
A completely outfitted accommodation in an inspiring setting
The Foxglove cabin is tucked into the woods and is a wonderful place to write—especially when rain patters on the metal roof and a fire crackles in the wood stove. It offers everything you need to live and work comfortably, including a well-equipped kitchen, linens, Wi-Fi, and a printer. But what makes it unique is its location. The beautiful natural setting of Whidbey Island is inspiring, and the fact that so many writers call it home assures you that you’ve found the perfect place to write.
“Remain sitting at your table and listen.
You need not even listen, simply wait, just learn to become
quiet, and still, and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.
It has no choice;
it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
