RETREAT SCHEDULE
DESIGN YOUR OWN RETREAT

LODGING ONLY: 

Come to write, alone, in pairs, or bring your critique group for a brainstorming session.

Bunkhouse: $40 per person/per night, $50 double occupancy, $100 single occupancy.

ADD-ONS:

Meals: Add $50 per day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Yoga: Add $15 per person for group classes. $50 for private lessons.

Massage Therapy: Add $100 per massage.

Private Mentorship with Lori Wilde: Add $500. Includes written critique of full manuscript and private tutoring for improvement. Available only for groups of three or fewer.

All Day Workshop With Lori Wilde: Add $800 per full day, $400 per half day, with the cost shared among the participants. Available only for groups of four or more. Please select workshop topics from the list provided when booking your retreat.

Example: If you have eight writers in your group, and you want meals, double occupancy lodging, and day-long writing workshops, it will cost $200 per person/per day. This is a savings of $50 per day over the Master Class, but it does not include yoga or nightly group activities, and you'll need to form your own group of eight.

Workshops offered by Lori Wilde:
 
High Concept
Emotional Beats
Plotting from the Character Arc
Goal, Motivation and Conflict
Setting as Character
Showing and Telling
ABC’s of Dialogue


GET AWAY FROM IT ALL:

If you just want to get away and write in peace and quiet, and you are willing to bring and prepare your own meals, you can stay in the bunkhouse for $40 per night. (We will do the clean-up for you, and we will provide free transportation to the grocery store or will do the shopping if you provide us with a list and your food budget.)
