TOAST: A Weekend for BREAD Young Adults

Rediscover the magic of BREAD camps at TOAST (Telling Our Abundant Stories Together) – the second ever BREAD young adult alumni weekend! At TOAST, we will visit old friends, reconnect with the sacred space of The Ranch, and participate in some of the same activities that made us fall in love with camp. Please join us as we help the Ranch expand and strengthen the community of BREAD alumni that we all hold close to our hearts.

Sink into the quiet places of creative work supported by facilitator Laurie Glover. Modeled after Quiet Days of Advent, Writing in Ordinary Time is offered to give you a week to enter into the deep work of writing in the company of others doing the same, whether you are just starting to be a writer, beginning a new work, or seeking a fresh approach to ongoing work. All the writers help each other with their honesty and commitment. All hold supportive silence with each other through the course of each day and gather to share every evening. Leave behind the pressures of getting published, networking, making career moves, the fears of not being any good, and just write!

Retreat Leader: LAURIE GLOVER, is a poet, essayist and novelist who has been teaching writing since 1990, at UC Davis since 1997. She has facilitated artist and writer’s retreats and writing workshops for over ten years.
