Writer's Retreat: The Writer's House at Century Farm

Write At The Farm April 13 – 15, 2014

The Writers' House at Century Farm, a creative retreat in Washington's Skagit Valley is the perfect place to create--a unique farmhouse that has been in the Skagit Valley since the dawn of the 20th century. A hundred year old barn to inspire you, acres of bucolic green fields and colorful flowers to help clear away your writer's block and give you the mental space you need.

The 2014 spring retreat session at The Writers' House at Century Farm with Jennifer Basye Sander, NYT bestselling author, former Random House senior editor, and co-author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published, will be held Sunday–Tuesday, April 13–15th. This is your chance to write surrounded by fields of flowers during the world-famous Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Arrive mid afternoon on Sunday to meet the other three writers and get settled in your private room. Spend the next few days in blissful creativity, working on your project, writing together with the other participants, consulting with Jennifer, enjoying home cooked meals and the free flowing wine while you discuss all manners of literary things far into the night. This is just the way you always wanted your writing life to look!

About the Write At The Farm Retreats --

After years of doing writers' retreat weekends at our house in Tahoe, I am bowing to requests to do something up at the family farm in Washington. Located in the heart of the Skagit Valley just down the road from the tulip headquarters, my great-grandfather's farm is midway between the towns of La Conner and Mt. Vernon, about an hour and a half north of Seattle. Easy to get to, and wonderful to settle into once you are there, relax and let the scenery and the history inspire you. All you have to do is be a writer for those few days, I take care of everything else. Meals, wine, and a private room with shared bathroom are included in the $395 price, and there are only four spots available. This is your chance to spend a pampered but productive and creative three days in the company of other writers and publishing folk. To reserve your spot or ask questions:
