Women At Woodstock

Women At Woodstock 2017 Writers Retreat

A 4-day writers’ retreat for women bloggers, memoirists, fiction writers, poets, and nonfiction writers of any age and all levels. Our content-rich, quiet, working session offers two tracks: Writers-In-Process and Emerging Writers.

WRITERS-IN-PROCESS – THE WRITERS COLONY

You will start each day with a one-hour workshop taught by resident writing coach Linda Lowen and then the day will be open for you to write, think, and map out your writing future without interruption, surrounded by other like-minded women also pursuing their own creative quests. During your stay, you will have an opportunity to submit a portion of your manuscript to Linda for review and a private consultation session about your work.

EMERGING WRITERS – THE STORY COTTAGE

You will join in an intensive full-morning writing workshop with resident writing coach Colleen Geraghty, where a safe space will be created for you to write and practice your developing skills with prompts, discussions, and short writing sessions.  In the afternoon, depending on the day, you will either attend an afternoon writing workshop or spend quiet time for uninterrupted writing on any prompt or project you choose.

OPTIONS FOR EVERYONE

For everyone at the Writing Retreat, there will be plenty of space and opportunity for private coaching, collaborative conversations, or total quiet – whatever it is that you need. In the late afternoon, we’ll gather for an Evening Salon of wine and cheese and readings, sharing what we wish from the day’s work. After dinner, we’ll continue with wine, chocolates, and conversation, or take advantage of the gorgeous “silent room” at the top of the sanctuary where you can write in peace into the wee hours if you wish.

A quiet, purposeful, extended period of several days just for you, The Writer, to release your creativity and write according to your heart’s desire among fellow women writers and knowledgeable, supportive coaches.  We have an entire beautiful eco-conscious lodge filled with light and fresh air all to ourselves – just outside of Woodstock, NY.

Dates: Thursday, October 19-Sunday, October 22 (check out after breakfast on Monday, October 23)

Location: Lifebridge Sanctuary, Rosendale, NY

Pricing: $429 for the entire event – plus lodging, which ranges from $140/night to $185/night depending on room type. The total fee is all-inclusive: it includes all meals, snacks, beverages (including wine), workshops, activities, and a gift bag.
