Write Your Memoir!
You arrive at the Kirkwood House, a Victorian retreat house in Cornwall-On-Hudson, New York, to find friends, fellow writers, and a new perspective on your life journey.
You start the day with yoga, attend writing workshops, are inspired with writing prompts, and share your writing with fellow writers. You find time to walk, chat, write, and dine with new friends in a quiet, beautiful country setting.
Join Mary Beth Coudal for a four-day, three-night retreat weekend. Be inspired as you write your memoir from September 27 to 29, 2013 at Kirkwood Retreat House.
As a participant, you will:
- Share, celebrate, and critique great writing.
- Read from your work in progress.
- Enjoy delicious, farm-fresh meals.
- Attend a daily yoga class.
- Dine one night in a nearby artists’ restaurant.
At the end of the weekend, you will have:
- Created a community of supportive writers.
- Written chapters of your memoir.
- Found threads of meaning in seemingly random moments of your life.
- Discovered the next steps to continue the good writing work.
