Summer Writing Camp

Date: July 10 - 14, 2017
Location: Northampton, MA
Cost: $400

Finally–give yourself to your writing for one delicious week! We will meet from 9am-4pm. Mornings will be dedicated to writing in my beautiful house, inside or out on the porch, or patio, or in the secret spot in the center of my labyrinth…or even on the second floor of my barn. There will be breaks for stretches, tea and coffee, snacks. We will have a delicious, healthy lunch together around my dining room table or outside in the backyard. We’d get back to writing at 1 and do some light sharing/workshopping from 3-4. July 10-14, 2017

Think Yaddo. Think MacDowell. Evenings, you are on your own to explore the cultural life of the Five College area, dine at some of our fine establishments, watch the late sunset, even go for an evening hike on one of the Seven Sisters.

For those with children: there are multiple wonderful week-long summer camps in the area. Consider coming with your partner and kids, and making it a vacation! Many local houses available for week-long rent.

Cost: $400. To register, write to
