The Pen and The Page
October 4 - October 6
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!

“I didn’t know why I was coming to The Pen and The Page. I came because someone I loved and trusted thought I should be here. A weekend away doesn’t change my circumstances, but this weekend I found glimpses of joy. I feel healing. I have seen God move. As a non-writer, I had no idea of the power of the pen on the page. I know God will continue to write His story in me.” – Cassi, retreat participant
“Recommending — oh yes! Tricia is a writer, a teacher, an inspirer. She understands the power of words: for healing, for life. This is a conference for anyone who desires to push in and discover the writer inside. Tricia puts together a weekend to be remembered.” – Sherri, retreat participant
