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—writing developed at the retreat or in workshop 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 optional evening out in Pioneertown, and workshop sessions.

How can I attend? Plans for 2022 are pending due to COVID-19. We’ll update this page and our Instagram as things develop.
