Poets on the Coast: A Weekend Writing Retreat for Women at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Oregon!

Some exciting news for 2011:  Susan Rich & I are going to be teaching a weekend-long writing retreat for women poets on the Oregon Coast!  AND it's at the Sylvia Beach Hotel, the same hotel that inspired my book, Letters From the Emily Dickinson Room.

We are just putting up all the details on how to register for the weekend and they can be found here along with frequently asked questions.

The main things to know is that it's scheduled for the weekend of September 9-11, 2011 in Newport, Oregon for a limited number of writers & if you sign up before Valentine's day (February 14th, 2011) it will be $250 to attend all the sessions beginning Friday evening to Sunday afternoon (after 2/14/11 the price goes up).  You are welcome to book a room at the Sylvia Beach Hotel (alone or share with a friend) or you are welcome to stay "off-campus" and commute in, whatever works best for you.

The Sylvia Beach Hotel is an incredible literary-themed hotel right on the Oregon coast and I am so excited to be returning with Susan and to be working with women who want to spend a weekend focusing on their writing.

Anyway, all the details, FAQs, and registration forms can be found here is you're interested.  I think it's going to be an amazing weekend!

I'll be sharing more info as we have it, but wanted to let you know here first because if you wanted to do something nice for yourself this new year to honor your writing, this might be something you'd like to attend.

  1. How can I get someone to do a writing weekend here on the East Coast? Hmmm


Always love to hear from you...and the anonymous option is open for those feeling shy.
