FAQs for Winter MountainTop Writers Retreat
* MountainTop Writers Retreats are sadly on hold until the Covid-19 pandemic has passed, and/or we can safely gather again.
I’ve never written a book, but I’ve always wanted to. Is this the retreat for me?
If you are looking for a place of peace and quiet, and the time and space to write, with optional social time, then Fall MountainTop is for you! Fall MountainTop is crafted especially for writers and creatives who need peace and quiet to work on or finish projects, but who also may want craft talks, manuscript advice, and more. Every item on the Fall MountainTop itinerary is included in your package, but all are optional.
What should I bring?
Anything you need in order to write! (WiFi is available, though it’s not advisable to download or stream TV shows or movies.)
The dress code is casual, as this is a remote mountain property at an elevation of 3,000 feet. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes, and if you’d like to explore the property by hiking or taking a yoga class, bring proper footwear, hiking shoes, etc. Temperatures in Fall can be cold, especially at night, so bring warm, functional clothes and outerwear suited to the mountains, and be prepared to dress in layers (including gloves and hats). Casual to elevated casual is appropriate for most restaurants in nearby towns.
Who can come to Fall MountainTop?
All adult writers are welcome at Fall MountainTop. (Must be 21 years old by the time of retreat.)
May I just book one night’s accommodation?
The rooms in the Lodge are reserved for full-time MountainTop Writers Retreat participants.
I want to bring a friend/spouse/partner who is not a writer and will not be participating in the retreat. Can we share a room?
All accommodation is single occupancy or shared with a participating writer. This is because your room is intended to be a private, contemplative creative space where you can retreat to write.
Fall MountainTop Writers Retreat is intended to be just that: a retreat from the world, and from the day-to-day responsibilities and concerns all writers face. It’s a time to focus solely on your writing, with the gorgeous mountains as your backdrop.
You will return to your spouses, partners, families, pets, friends, and jobs with renewed creative energy—and hopefully lots of new pages! You will be all the better for having gifted yourself this time away from it (and them) all.
