The heart of it 2020

The Heart of It is an annual writing retreat in rural New Mexico curated by Desireé Dallagiacomo. THOI will be held in March of 2020. The application window is from August 1st-September 1st 2019. Though the application for 2020 in not available yet, you can take a peak at last years application if you want. You can find the application here.

To become a THOI fellow, you do not have to have any previous writing experience, you do not have to be a published poet, and you do not have to have any fancy accolades. You do have to want to get close and get deep and get honest with your wild, wild heart. This retreat is meant to be as accessible as possible, and we hope that you apply and find a home here with us.

The Heart of It is held in Jemez Springs, New Mexico in a house built for fellowship and writing, generously donated each year by Ava Haymond.
