Writers Can Retreat in Colebrook

Five writers seeking a spring retreat will get a chance to put pen to paper (or warm up their laptops) at the Rock Hall Luxe Lodging in Colebrook. From Friday, April 1 to Sunday, April 3 writers will enjoy the scenic luxury lodging and gourmet food for which Rock Hall is famous. The weekend includes long periods of writing time, interrupted only by an intimate discussion of Twain's writing style from scholars at the Mark Twain House & Museum and readings from Connecticut writers.

This program is supported by Writing at the Mark Twain House, an initiative to include more writing programs at the museum. Since its inception, Writing at the Mark Twain House has run highly successful writing workshops and a blog by the same name.

This idyllic writing weekend comes with a membership to The Mark Twain House & Museum and ends with a tour of the Twain's mansion in Hartford. Twain himself often escaped his Hartford home for more peaceful and private settings in which to write. The Mark Twain House is sponsoring this escape from busy everyday life, and to allow local and national writers the chance to follow in Twain's footsteps.

Cost for the Writers' Weekend is $725 or $800 (depending on the type of room) and includes lodging, most meals, internet access, lectures and museum membership. Call 860-379-2230 for Writers' Weekend availability and reservations. Only five spots available.
