Writers relax on the patio.

The Writers Retreat

UPDATE: The retreat week is now fully booked.

Imagine a place for the serious writer who wants to get away from it all and connect with other writers, a place to unwind and concentrate on your writing.

This retreat is open to those attending the workshop. The writing retreat is an additional week for serious writers to write. There are no instructors and no programs this week (except for optional evening readings). (You may have a spouse or friend join you. That person's fee would be $450 for the retreat week.)

Many of you are already in writers groups but this will be different. It will be a week of self directed, concentrated writing. You can start a new project or polish one in progress. Evening readings are not mandatory, but when you see the quality of the writing presented, you’ll want to participate.

The retreat dates for 2020 are Sunday June 28th (arriving after 3pm) to Saturday July 4th (ending after breakfast). This is the week prior to the workshop. You will stay through both weeks without interruption, although lunch is not provided on July 4th.

If you have a non-writing friend or spouse attending workshop week with you, they may also attend the retreat. Their total price would be $1,325 as well.

There are roughly 15 private rooms available during the retreat at an additional charge of $75 each. These rooms will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. The total retreat cost for a private room is $525.

Space is limited for the retreat. Please remember that Wildacres fills up quickly. The Writers Retreat Program can sleep no more than 40 attendees. We always have a waiting list.
