2011 mother words writing retreat

There are still a few spots available for the 2nd annual Mother Words Writing Retreat at Faith’s Lodge.

When: 4 p.m. on Thursday, February 24 – 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 27

Where: Faith’s Lodge, Wisconsin

We’ll write, share our writing, discuss challenges with craft, and have time to connect with other mother writers in the luxury and quiet of Faith’s Lodge. Group meetings and individual conferences with me will help support you as you delve more deeply into your writing and learn to take risks on the page. Come immerse yourself in the writing life with other mothers who write.

Faith’s Lodge is located on 80 picturesque acres in Northwestern Wisconsin near the town of Webster, less than a two-hour drive from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, less than one hour from Duluth/Superior and about four hours from Madison. The mission of Faith’s Lodge is to provide a place where parents and families facing the serious illness or loss of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present, and build hope for the future.

You need not have experienced the loss of a child to attend the retreat. This retreat is for all mother writers. (But proceeds from the Mother Words Writing Retreat will benefit the children and families served by Faith’s Lodge.)

Cost: $650 (single room) or $550 (shared room, separate beds) – includes lodging, meals, and writing instruction

To register: Contact Marquetta Nickols at Faith’s Lodge at or 612-825-2073.

The Lodge has eight guest suites. Each suite features a private bath, fireplace, balcony/patio, flat screen TV, DVD player, small fridge, and coffee maker.
