Motherhood & Words™ 2012 Writing Retreat
Thursday, February 23 - Sunday, February 26, 2012
Faith's Lodge. Danbury, Wisconsin
Cost: $650 for single room, $550 for shared room (separate beds)


Join LM Literary Reflections Editor Kate Hopper for a weekend retreat for mother-writers. You'll write, share your writing, discuss challenges with craft, and have time to connect with other mother writers in the luxury and quiet of Faith's Lodge. Group meetings and individual conferences will help support you as you delve more deeply into your writing and learn to take risks on the page.

Faith's Lodge is located on 80 acres in Northwestern Wisconsin near the town of Webster, less than a two-hour drive from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, less than one hour from Duluth/Superior, and about four hours from Madison. The mission of Faith's Lodge is to provide a place where parents and families facing the serious illness or loss of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present, and build hope for the future.

But you need not have experienced the loss of a child to attend the retreat. The Motherhood & Words Retreat is for all mother writers. (But a portion of the proceeds from the retreat will benefit the children and families served by Faith's Lodge.)

The Lodge has eight guest suites, and we can accommodate up to 10 people for the retreat. Each guest suite features a private bath, fireplace, balcony/patio, flat screen TV, DVD player, small fridge, and coffee maker. Meals are included.

Contact Marquetta Nickols at Faith's Lodge at 612-825-2073 or marquetta (at) faithslodge (dot) org to register.
