Join editors from Barrelhouse Magazine
for a writer’s retreat in lovely Central Pennsylvania.
Camp 1: Thursday, June 20–Sunday, June 23, 2019
Camp 2: Wednesday, July 31–Sunday, August 4, 2019
Writer Camp! This is a laid-back working vacation with plenty of time for writing. Each participant also has the option of receiving detailed feedback from a Barrelhouse editor on (some of) their work. Your registration fee includes lodging, all meals, a few group activities, plenty of time to write, and campfires every night.
A quick rundown of what this will be:
Four days, three nights (Camp 1) or five days, four nights (Camp 2) - choose a more immersive experience or an express version!
Lodging in a lovely, rustic, brand new creekside hostel in the wilds of Central Pennsylvania, in your choice of a private room or a shared bunkhouse.
All meals are included
A bunch of writers sitting around in a bucolic central PA setting and writing for most of the day
Optional one-on-one sessions with an editor who will provide detailed suggestions for improving specific pieces of writing. Basically, this is a one-person workshop with a Barrelhouse editor (note: this really is optional; if you're at the place in your writing where what you really need is time to write and you'd rather just do that, that is cool with us)
Barrelhouse editors and staff on site the entire time ready to hang out and talk to you about whatever
One (totally optional!) group activity -- a hike or kayak or swim or something outdoorsy -- if the weather permits, per day
Keywords we might use: Low key, laid back, informal, smart, fun.
Where do you want to write? Your private room, the big event hall, in a lounge chair by the creek, or in a handwoven hammock?
Writer Camp is hosted by the brand new Godspeed Hostel in Port Matilda, PA, roughly 10 minutes outside State College.
