Unworkshops: Your Room to Create August 2014 | August 24 – August 31, 2014

Here are the upcoming dates available for an Unworkshop in 2014:

  • August 24-31
  • October 23-30
  • November 9-22
  • December 14-20

All writers and artists need to give themselves time. Time to think. Time to imagine. Time to create.

All writers and artists need room. Room in their lives in which to create.

We have comfortable cabins. Nice walking and jogging trails. We even have yoga some mornings.

Perhaps an editor or so will happen by for dinner, maybe for breakfast. And likely you will bond with some like-minded creative folks in the Unworkshop. But the focus is on your creating.

Come for any number of days that fit your needs. Arrive any time after lunch, and leave before dinner on the departure day of your choosing. Stay for a day or a week, as long as you need to write. See what works for you.

Here’s what we will do:

• Provide a comfortable, private place to stay, with a writing table and other amenities (refrigerator and hot beverage center included).

• Respect the sanctity of your writing space.

• Three great meals a day, where you can eat and socialize as you wish with like-minded people (or take the food back to your room on a tray if you are in the middle of a landslide of writing inspiration). Snacks are available at all times.

• Have a couple extra computers and printers available for your use.

You can read about the experience of one of our recent retreat participants here.
