Our Story

Hi there, we’re thrilled you’re here!

A bit about us, in case you’re wondering!

In 2013, C.J. Redwine, a multi-published, New York Times bestselling author, created The Writer’s Sanctuary with the vision to build a nurturing, connected community of writers at every stage of their careers. Over the years, The Writer’s Sanctuary grew from one retreat in the fall of each year to two yearly in-person retreats, along with virtual events, workshops, mentoring programs, and resources for writers. In 2018, she brought award-winning, bestselling author Mary Weber on as a full partner to help expand what The Writer’s Sanctuary could offer. Both Mary and C.J. are dedicated to nurturing writers, whether brand new or multi-published, and are excited to bring you a host of outstanding events and programming to help writers develop their craft, provide opportunity for connection, and build community across all of TWS’ platforms.
