Writers’ Retreat

Meant to inspire, the event will feature some inspirational talks, lots of writing time, wonderful food and a beautiful, evocative environment. The Southern Hotel is a great supporter of the arts, and registrants are welcome to use the public space in the hotel for impromptu plotting, brainstorming sessions, quiet reflection or furious writing. Cost is $45 for the day. A book signing is planned for the evening and is open to registrants subject to available space. (If signing books, an additional $10 fee will need to be paid to the hotel for set up – it will be billed separately.)

Lunch and afternoon refreshments are included in the cost for registration. There are several excellent restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel as well as Ox Lot 9, the Southern Hotel’s own restaurant.
