Grand Lake Retreat

Grand Lake Retreat

Join Lighthouse Writers Workshop in the scenic mountain town of Grand Lake, Colorado, for a few days of writing, reading, and learning. Each day, you're invited to attend workshops and craft talks led by our experienced instructors. There's also plenty of time to explore the area, get outdoors, or just find a quiet spot and write. At night, participants gather for fireside readings and conversation. You're sure to leave with new ideas, new writing, and more than a few new friends. The 2018 retreat will be from July 8-13. Registration opens in March.

Accommodations

Shadowcliff Lodge, our retreat site, borders Rocky Mountain National Park and the roaring North Inlet Stream. It’s perched on a cliff overlooking Grand Lake Village and the Colorado Great Lakes area. The food at the lodge is homemade and delicious, and the rooms all have spectacular views. There are a few single rooms available, but most participants share a room with one or two other writers (the rooms can sleep six comfortably). We also recommend the Rapids Lodge, just down the hill from Shadowcliff.

Spending a week amid a community of writers truly restored my spirit, imagination, and commitment to my creative work.
