Rosemont Writers Retreat Sponsored by Philadelphia Stories Magazine

About the 2010 Rosemont Writers’ Retreat

Located on a 56-acre campus in an attractive, historic suburban community, Rosemont College is a peaceful sanctuary located just minutes by train from center city Philadelphia. Each day of the Rosemont Writers Retreat will begin with an elective yoga session. At noon each day there will be a craft lecture and interview with a well-known author. Afternoons will be spent in an intense three hour workshop run by an instructor who is not only an accomplished writer in her own right, but also an experienced teacher. Workshops will be limited to no more than twelve participants, ensuring that each author will have plenty of critique time. Nightly faculty readings and receptions, along with an open mic, will offer plenty of networking opportunities, but the emphasis will be on immersing yourself in the writing life and your own work. Full access to the Rosemont computing and fitness facilities will be available.

Weeklong Retreat Sunday, June 6th – Friday, June 11th Tuition $595 Room & Board $200 Yoga $20

Partial List of Faculty 

 Elise Juska, short story

Lise Funderburg, creative non-fiction

Liz Abrams-Morley, multi-genre (Wooing Your Muse)

The 3rd Annual Writers’ Retreat offers writers much-needed time apart from the stresses of daily life to hone their craft through sessions with published authors, daily readings, a how-to publish workshop, time to relax with other writers, and daily yoga. Workshops are also available for graduate college credit. Please email or call Carla Spataro, retreat director for more information.
