About the hot Springs 

This retreat is far from just about any large city in Texas. It's close to Big Bend National Park, Marfa, and Alpine.  We're hosting it at the Chinati Hotsprings because of this reclusivness. These hotsprings are one of the best kept secrets within the state of Texas. It is about 9 hours from Austin and about 4 and a half from El Paso. 

What you need 

Most of the workshops will be based on writing from scraps. We will be using found lines, left over parts from old songs, and working on turning random lines and journal entries into ideas for songs. So bring all your scrap note books, old pictures, artworks, journals, favorite novels, or anything you can think of that will let you improvise on ideas for writing.
