We hope to create an environment to write.
That's why there's nothing happening before noon - not even a scheduled breakfast. We will have food and writing prompts available every morning for you to take at your convenience and write in solitude with the mountain and lake.
That also means, just like the AspenHouse model, you get to pick what appeals to you, and only what appeals to you. You are not obligated to participate in any of the events listed below. We believe that we are ever-growing as authors and storytellers, and want to share our experiences in the process so far. Learning is up to you and your interests.
