Writers/Illustrators Weekend Retreat

The MD/DE/WV SCBWI is planning our 3rd Annual Writers/Illustrators Weekend Retreat on December 3, 4, & 5, 2010 (Friday afternoon through Sunday morning) at Blue Mountain Retreat Center in Knoxville, MD, just across the river from Harpers Ferry, WV.

This is your chance for a weekend of quiet writing or illustrating time, discussions with fellow writers, critique sessions, opportunities to read your work aloud, and 2 optional hands-on craft of writing workshops presented by Lois Szymanski and Edie Hemingway.

We can accommodate up to 13 people, based on 3 single rooms and 5 double rooms.  The cost of the weekend will include twin bed accommodations and five catered organic meals (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday breakfast).  Other amenities include wireless high speed internet, a hot tub, a great room with fireplace, a kitchen, and large wrap-around deck. Visit http://bluemtnretreat.org/ for more details and photos of the center.

Please note that single rooms will go fast!  Reserve your spot early.

Cost:  $160 for a double room OR $185 for a single room (cost of both includes meals)

Date: December 3, 4, & 5, 2010 (Beginning 4:00 PM Friday)

Registration is on a “first come, first served” basis up to 13 paid registrants on or before November 1, 2010.  Once filled, a waiting list will be started.

Cancellation Policy:  After Nov. 10th, money will be refunded only if your spot can be filled.
