NEORWA Writing Retreat

I’ve been asked to pass this on to all TRRW members, once again invited to the NEORWA annual writing retreat.

I know it’s hard to think about what you’re doing three months from now, but it’s time to start confirming attendees for retreat. I need to provide two months’ notice to Punderson to cancel a cabin. Based on last year’s sparse attendance and the response to the poll I posted a week or two ago, I think cancelling the 4th cabin will probably be necessary, but we shall see.

The details:

NEORWA’s annual writing retreat will be held once again at Punderson State Park, November 8-10 (we are a week later this year so as not to conflict with Buckeye Book Fair). There’s no formal program for Friday night, although if there’s interest we could probably come up with something. In recent years most cabins have met for dinner at the Punderson restaurant on Friday. Saturday there is usually a potluck dinner (or pizza) together as a group in one of the cabins. Otherwise you’re on your own to write and eat and drink and chat and plot and walk in the woods and generally have fun with your writer friends.

We have reserved 4 cabins, each of which accommodates up to 6 people (2 sets of bunk beds and 1 queen size bed). (I will be cancelling one of these cabins if there are not enough attendees.) The cost is $80.00 per person.

Please note: we cannot issue refunds if you are unable to attend at the last minute, unless there is a wait list or someone wishes to take your place.

If you would like to attend, please send $80 to treasurer@neorwa.com via PayPal, and indicate in the comments box that this is for retreat, and list the name(s) of your preferred cabinmates. This is the ONLY way to register. If you have any questions, please email me at marin@marinmcginnis.com.

For more info about Punderson, visit www.pundersonmanorstateparklodge.com. The park is located at 11755 Kinsman Rd., Newbury, Ohio 44065.

Once everyone is registered, I’ll organize people into cabins and invite everyone to the retreat loop.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
