Desert Salon

What is Desert Salon? Desert Salon is an annual writing retreat in Joshua Tree, which has morphed into a collective for emerging California writers.

Attendees at the first retreat in 2018 worked on everything from novels and short stories to screenplays and stand-up comedy routines. Since then, we’ve had major successes—projects developed at Desert Salon have gone on to be featured in major national magazines, literary magazines, anthologies, podcast episodes, and more.

Aside from lots of quiet writing time, the four-night retreat includes: Nightly readings, group meals, optional group hikes, an evening out in Pioneertown, and workshop sessions.

How can I attend? Now open for applications for the 2022 retreat. Visit our Instagram page for details on how to get more info.
