are prepared and provided (allergies and food limitations will be
thoroughly addressed). One evening we generally go Dutch Treat to
a local restaurant for yummy West Coast seafood (or whatever else
you like). You bring your own sheets and bath towel - a pillow and
blankets are provided. No laundry facilities in the houses, but
there is a full kitchen in each house. Colonyhouse has wi-fi and
the cell signal is good. The wi-fi is weaker at Brecht House, but
cell signal is fine. (Colonyhouse and Brecht House are about 15
feet apart on the same lot.)
we'll have time to gather in the living room and talk about craft,
technique, writing, publishing, and other writerly issues. Lori
will read up to 5,000 words of each writer's work-in-progress and
meet privately for an hour during the week to talk about it and
about your writing goals and approach.
evenings we'll have an optional art event: Collaging with Luca Hart
(materials provided, but you can bring your favorite magazines to
cut up, if you like). Working with images, we find, sharpens your
writing skills and increases creativity. It's a great way to bring
characters into focus, too.
