The retreats are full all 3 sessions, but that doesn't mean you can't get in! The wait list is there to serve you. This year, at this point, the end of July, the wait list is not very deep, a handful of names at best. The previous two years, to fill spots due to late cancellations, I went through a list of more than 25 names. You never know who on that list might not be able to attend, or can only go one session or another, and suddenly your name comes up. So don't be shy, add your name if you're interested in the 2016 retreats!
Registration opened last night, with that third session added, and it was amazing that the site held together with all the traffic. Sorry if you had a hankering for session 2, but it sold out in about 18 minutes! As of this writing though, session 1 and 3 still have slots available. But don't delay!
Announcing the addition of a third session for 2015! There was just too much demand for it, so here you go, folks. I've already scheduled a couple of special guests to whet your interest: Greg Bear and Devon Monk. Stay tuned...registration opens soon!
It always goes by so fast, doesn't it? Over 70 writers in 2 weeks had a chance to commune with the rainforest and other writers and write over 600,000 words! Stay tuned to the website for news about retreats for 2015.
Not too long from now, expect to see the "Gallery" page back with images from this year's retreats.
Here we are, the day before the first session. We're sold out, and the resort will be completely full. We have a great line-up of activities, and a whole bunch of fabulous writers on hand. It's going to be good. Second session, hang in there. You're next!
As of today, 26 folks are on the waiting list. There's been no real rearranging or cancellations as of yet.
I've definitely given consideration to adding a third session. Stay tuned, and if you want early notice of any third session decision, get on the wait list!
We're all full, both sessions, and a wait list is started (about 10 folks on the list as of today). Last year we went through a list of about 20 due to cancellations. That's not always the case, but it was a tough year for some of the writers and families. Join the wait list!

The 2013 retreats are over. What a great couple of weeks! Thanks to everyone who made it extra special. Look for registration to open up for 2014 sometime late March or early April. The registration window opens and closes fast these days, so your best bet is to visit a few times a day and keep your eyes peeled for the registration pages.
