Writing Retreat Opportunity

This is a friends-locked post on behalf of a couple writer pals who are looking for a roommate for a summer writing retreat in a few weeks.

A little background… Last summer, a handful of children’s writers got together at the Valcour Inn and Conference Center on Lake Champlain for a few days of quiet writing and not-so-quiet eating and talking about books and writing.  We’re doing it again this summer, and due to an unexpected health issue, one person has had to cancel.  Her two roommates are looking for a third person to share their triple room, which has three double beds, a private bathroom, and an entrance to a big second-floor porch overlooking the lake.

The retreat runs Sunday to Wednesday – July 11-14.  We get started around 2pm on Sunday and wrap up at about 3pm on Wednesday.  The total cost for the available spot would be $365 – including three nights lodging and all meals from dinner on Sunday through lunch on Wednesday.  The people who come are a friendly mix of serious writers, both published and unpublished, and it’s very unstructured, though we do have a few organized things like yoga one morning for those who want to practice and an evening reading of works in progress one night after dinner.

If you might be interested in that available spot and want more information, please drop me an email as soon as possible (kmessner at katemessner dot com).

  1. tempted me with this very retreat a few months ago! But alas: any time off work is out of the question this July (two writers on maternity leave at the same time!), so I had to pass. Seeing the retreat mentioned again, however, has given me resolve to let Erin tempt me for real next time. 🙂

    Hope you find someone…and have a great retreat!
