Unworkshops: Your Room to Create May 24-31, 2015 | May 24 – May 31, 2015

Treat yourself to an Unworkshop!
We believe that all writers and artists can benefit from the gift of time. Time to think. Time to imagine. Time to create. Oh, and time away – from duties & distractions.

“Let’s have people come and just write,” we decided. “We’ll call it the Unworkshop.”

  • Give you a comfortable, private place to stay, with a writing table and other amenities, including a refrigerator, hot beverage center and round-the-clock snacks.
  • Provide you with 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).
  • Have a couple extra computers and printers available for your use.
  • Show you where to find our walking trails, in case you need a break. We also offer yoga some mornings.
  • Respect the sanctity of your writing space.
Hear what some unworkshoppers have
to say about the experience:

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.
