Find the solitude and disconnection you need in this weekend writers retreat! Take inspiration and peace from the lodge’s winter landscape during this word-filled weekend with author Callie Bates. Finally pin that idea down on paper or start a story anew from prompts and exercises. Join the workshops and receive feedback from the instructor and your fellow participants. Get your fix on the full creative process – and how to get it published afterward. Hand cramping up? Take time to explore the incredible grounds of Forest Lodge by snowshoe, or visit the local ski trails in nearby Cable.

Meet Your Instructor

Callie Bates is the author of The Waking Land trilogy: The Waking Land, The Memory of Fire, and the forthcoming The Soul of Power (2019). She is also a harpist and certified harp therapist, sometimes artist, and nature nerd. When she’s not creating, she’s hitting the trails or streets and exploring new places.
