The Pen and the Page

With Tricia Lott Williford

The Pen and the page: Writing as worship

Understand who you are, whose you are, and the story you and God are writing together at The Pen and the Page, an overnight weekend writing retreat at Glen Eyrie.

Carefully crafted for writers of every level, this writing retreat invites you to explore writing as a sacred pathway of worship. Whether you’ve written books or simply enjoy scribbling your thoughts, something truly magical happens when you invite the Holy Spirit into your writing practice: you can more fully understand who you are, Whose you are, and the story you and God are writing together. 

Author and speaker Tricia Lott Williford will guide you through sessions of creative discovery and spiritual renewal as you draw closer to the Ultimate Creator and what matters most.  

As a result of writing practice together, each person will develop the following:

  • an identity as a writer with a story to tell
  • an awareness of your own stories
  • a practice to take home and implement on a daily basis
  • a sense of healing, restoration, and peace; and an intimacy with God as you embrace writing as a sacred path for worship

Surrounded by the beauty of Glen Eyrie, you will find the space and inspiration you need as you explore writing as an act of worship! Join us for this lifechanging retreat!

If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Glen Eyrie Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.

We are making every effort to comply with state and county orders and recommendations regarding cleanliness and food service.

However, we have chosen at Glen Eyrie to no longer require any guests or staff to wear a facemask.  We also recognize that guests will be resuming travel and group activities with a variety of diverse experiences with COVID-19 and differing comfort levels. These are unique times to navigate.  We encourage guests to take individual measures to help stop the spread of illness, including remaining at home and not participating in group activities if experiencing symptoms of illness, practicing social distancing, hand hygiene, and mask usage as an individual choice if needed. 

Attire for the weekend is casual. If you are staying in a lodge, be prepared to walk to the Castle for meetings and meals.  Our weather can be unpredictable, so pack layers and comfortable walking shoes. We have 8 miles of private hiking trails, you may want to take advantage of those during your free time as well.
