Writing Retreat

A Magical Moment

The setting for this year’s Writing Retreat — Join us, September 6–9 to learn about writing more engagingly, making your work stand out, and getting published. Ample activities for non-writers include kayaking, lobster bakes, and more.

A Lunch to Remember

We took a short stroll up the dirt road to the farm, where a table awaited us — the spread only outmatched by the view of the sparkling blue water in the Fox Island Thoroughfare. Come with us this summer!

Sorrel So Real
