A HERO’S JOURNAL
(Virtual Writing Retreat)
Sponsored by Ohio Chapter of Illuman
January 7-8, & January 15, 2022
Who are the gods that are accompanying you?
What do Narcissus and Mentor say to you?
Illuman is dedicated to helping men on a spiritual journey. That quest is what this writing retreat is about. What are the myths that are guiding your journey? We will draw some of our inspiration from the work of author and storyteller Michael Meade.
You don’t have to think of yourself as a poet to greatly benefit from this Illuman writing retreat. The weekend is open to men of all writing experiences—from complete novice to published author. We mainly focus on free-verse, open-form poetry. You won’t have to worry about rhyming, cadence, nor other aspects of some classical poetry.
We will gather virtually as a large group, but we will also experience some time one-on-one with another participant, and there is an extended lunch and wandering included for Saturday. All this is to say that the retreat has a lot of variety in it. You won’t be sitting watching experts talk about poetry. You will be invited to be fully involved.
This will be the fifth year for the writing retreat sponsored by Ohio Illuman. We are thrilled to invite men from around the world to join us in this reflective writing journey as we gather virtually to share our real-life mythic experiences.
Come join us on an epic poetry writing retreat!
We ask you to attend the entire retreat if possible.
