Grand Lake Retreat


  • Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge 405 Summerland Park Rd Grand Lake, CO 80447 USA

Join us in the scenic mountain village of Grand Lake, Colorado, to immerse yourself in writing, sharing, and creative meandering for five days. Each day you'll be invited to attend morning writing workshops and afternoon activities, sit in on rap sessions, and read your work aloud at fireside readings. You'll also be free to wander around town, take a mountain bike ride, a long hike, or a pontoon ride on Grand Lake.

Classes led by Erika Krouse: "Dynamic Scenes: Tips, Tricks and Danger Zones," and "The Butler Didn’t Do It: Memory in The Remains of the Day." Retreat instructors: Erika Krouse, Andrea Dupree, Michael Henry, Chris Ransick, William Haywood Henderson, Karen Palmer, and Jennifer Itell.
