Adirondack Retreat

Time: 5:30pm Monday - 5pm Wednesday
Location: Keene, NY
Cost: $300

Come write with Nerissa Nields in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate NY! Two hours north of Albany, Nerissa has been running retreats in the lovely town of Keene NY, nestled in the High Peaks. Write, hike, enjoy wonderful food and music and company!

This retreat starts on Monday evening at 5:30pm with registration, dinner, and a round of introductions, and a first writing/sharing session. We’ll regroup at 9:15am Tuesday, and write together for the morning, and then take a break for lunch, during which time you can visit the sweet and charming towns of Keene or Keene Valley, or go for a quick hike or stroll. We’ll gather again at 3pm and write for another two hours or so, and then Nerissa will feed everyone a delicious and healthy (but not too healthy) dinner on the beautiful deck of the Adirondack house. We’ll hear from poets and songwriters Tuesday night and then sing our hearts out (or play Attaturk…). Wednesday, we’ll gather for a long writing session, followed by lunch at the house, and then sharing. Retreat ends at 5pm on Wednesday.

Retreats are an excellent time to get a project started, work uninterrupted on a longer piece or just breathe a little.

To register, write her at Cost is $300.
