The Book Project Writers Getaway

Writers Getaway

Spend three nights at the charming Hand Hotel in Fairplay, Colorado, writing, thinking, reading, and sharing work with your fellow Book Projecteers. The Hand has great mountain views and plenty of space for laptops, notebooks, and lounging by the fireplace. Lighthouse faculty and staff will be on hand (pun intended) to help coordinate social activities. 


The Writers Getaway is optional and open to all Book Project graduates and current participants. Food, lodging, and transportation are the responsibility of the attendees. Room sharing and  car pooling encouraged! 


You must call the Hand directly to reserve your room: (719) 836-3595. Say you’re with Lighthouse. 


Other options include the Riverside Inn Hotel, the Mountain Comfort Bed & Breakfast, and Airbnb or VRBO in the Fairplay/Alma areas. If you’re staying at the Hand, breakfast is included. Those staying off-site can purchase breakfast in advance for $8/day.


Email [email protected] or call (303) 297-1185 with questions. 


The next Writers Getaway will be May 18-21, 2018.
