Escape for a weekend writing retreat in the Maryland foothills that cradle the serene and beautiful Fox Haven Farm in Jefferson. Join faculty Susan Cohen and Lisa Couturier, professional writers and editors distinguished in their fields, noted for their teaching abilities, and dedicated to helping participants improve their skills. Readings, a short writing activity, and Q&A with authors on Friday evening, workshops on Saturday, a Saturday evening dinner with authors, and smaller working groups on Sunday will be offered. Participate in one, two, or all three opportunities. Overnight stays in beautiful restored farmhouses are available on first come, first served basis.
Lisa Couturier’s Saturday writing workshop, “Writing as Predator,” asks participants to “hunt” in the wilderness of their souls, since it is there that our most hopeful and fulfilling writing is born and thrives.
Susan Cohen’s Saturday memoir writing workshop, “The Geography of Childhood,” asks participants to explore their connections to places from their childhood that impacted their lives.
