Wildacres Writing Workshop
Writers relax on the patio.

The Writers Retreat

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 2022 are Sunday July 3rd (arriving after 3pm) to Saturday July 9th (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 9th. You must be attending the workshop week to attend the retreat week.

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.

Single occupancy rooms are VERY limited. There is an upcharge of $150 for retreat week and $175 for workshop week if you'd like a single occupancy room. (We cannot guarantee a private room, so please, if you send money or a deposit, send only the regular rate for now and someone will be in touch with you about a single room.)

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.
