Adirondack Writer Retreat

CLOSED for 2015 – But think about 2016…

You arrive at the manor house to find new and old friends and fellow writers.

Mary Beth Coudal East Coast Writers Weekend Fresh Food

You gather for workshops and hands-on exercises and discussions. You retreat to work on your memoir project in one of the estate’s creative and cozy spaces.

You share farm fresh meals in the gorgeous dining room.

You wake to light and space and time simply to write. You do it all over again.

Join this 4-day, 3-night intensive writing weekend in this unique old-world setting.

Curl up with your pen or laptop in a window seat or on the terrace overlooking Lake Champlain. Walk in the woods or take the stone steps down to the private beach.

Workshops may include: “Setting and Landscape,” “Art Journaling through Words and Pictures,” and “Our Need To Tell Stories.”
