Writing retreats are usually expensive. If you wanted to, you could spend hundreds of dollars on a few days of peace and quiet. For a few hundred more, perhaps a famous writer would join you.
That’s not what the BWW is about. We like things free.
To that end, Michael Freed-Thall is opening up his home in beautiful Fletcher, Vermont for a free writing retreat on August 30th (raindate August 31st).
We’ll be adding more details as the date draws near. Perhaps we’ll even find a famous author who could drop by. For now, though, here is some basic, preliminary information to help you decide if this is right for you.
Why do this?
Because it’s a chance for some extended, concentrated writing sessions, followed by discussion of writing, in a rural setting.
What types of activities will be planned?
- Individual goal setting for the day
- Up to five hours of individual writing time
- Discussion of work
- A skills workshop/craft lesson
- Lunch (provided)
- Dinner (pot luck)
- Forest hike
- Campfire (which always involves storytelling!)
How will retreat participants be chosen?
Fill out the application online. Unlike most workshops we run, it is not a first-come, first-served thing.
Please apply by August 1oth. Tell your friends!
