Writers’ Retreat Signup and Payment

The 2020 Retreat will take place VIRTUALLY from 10 AM Eastern on Wednesday, July 22 and continue until Tuesday, July 28

Dear fellow scribblers,

My apologies for waiting so long to send you news about the 2020 Woodstock Mayapple Writers Retreat. For obvious reasons, we can’t meet face to face at our beloved Villetta Inn on the mountain above Woodstock. However, Zoom provides, or at least should offer a decent facsimile. This is our 18th year!

Unlike some other workshops, I can’t see big prices for a virtual experience. I’m asking $100, to help support Mayapple Press and pay for my Zoom Pro subscription. If this is a hardship for you, please let us know. DEADLINE: midnight, July 16, to register and pay the fee.

The format will be, as always, small daily workshop meetings, 3-5 people working in the same genre. Certainly poetry and poetry manuscript workshops, as always, and prose or mixed genre if desired.

There is no arrival night, so we will begin at 10 AM Eastern on Wednesday, July 22 and continue until Tuesday, July 28. If a group unanimously wants to change to a different time, we can accommodate that, but please remember that some people will want time to write. After a brief Zoom session to log everyone in, I will set up “breakout rooms” within my Zoom account so you have as much time as you need. (Free Zoom accounts limit you to 40 minutes.) If you need coaching on Zoom, please contact me. Technical note: Zoom breakout meetings will not work on a Chromebook. If you do not know what this means, then you don’t have to worry)

Please complete and submit the form below as early as possible to help us assess interest and complete our planning. Fill in requested content in each box. When you click “Submit” an email message will be sent to the program coordinator. Items with asterisks are required fields.
