May Writers’ Retreat

Raise Your Voice: Nonfiction Writers’ Retreat
May 29-31, 2009
Ancramdale, NY

woman-at-lap-top1Our writers’ retreats give participants writing instruction, one-on-one critique, and fundamental knowledge about publishing in the non-fiction market. Surprisingly, many otherwise talented non-fiction writers have never been taught the basic skill of organizing their material – their narrative or argument – into a coherent and clear outline. The outline is the scaffolding for all good and marketable non-fiction writing and teaching participants to apply an outline method clarifies their work for publication whether the text in question is as short as a 700 word op-ed or as substantial as a 100,000 word book. Our courses focus on writing op-ed pieces, features, book proposals and pitching ideas. Our Faculty Members Include: Deborah Siegel, Kristen Kemp, and Catherine Orenstein. Alumna of this retreat write for New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Salon, Bitch Magazine, Glamour, Christian Science Monitor, and many others. Our writers have published books; “Fat Envelope Frenzy“, “On My Own Two Feet“, “Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters“, “The Devil, The Lovers & Me: My Life in Tarot” to name just a few.

The retreat is going to take place over the weekend of May 29-31 at Woodhull’s Retreat Center in Ancramdale, NY. The cost is $695 which includes tuition, materials, lodging, and meals. To some that price may seem daunting but Woodhull will create a payment plan that is feasible for all women interested in this retreat.

    As a former participant in a Woodhull Writers’ Retreat, I can not tell you how invaluable this experience was. I walked in thinking of myself as an academic who likes to write and left believing that I was a writer destined to have a book deal. It wasn’t as easy as snapping my fingers, but four years later, I have a book on the shelves and numerous ideas for more books. Heads up to all you potential writers out there: the Woodhull Writers’ Retreat changed my life!
