No speakers, no programs, just time to write or draw surrounded by the beautiful scenery of west Marin, plus informal evening readings and critiques.
Green Gulch Farm is part of the San Francisco Zen Center. The farm is located off of Highway 1 north of the Golden Gate Bridge, in a valley that opens out onto the Pacific Ocean. The accommodations for the retreat are at the Lindisfarne Guest House.
The Guest House is a distinctive octagonal building with twelve rooms on two floors surrounding a 30-foot skylit atrium. The atrium provides a relaxing skylit sitting area where guests often gather to read or sit with a cup of tea by the fire. The building is constructed in a traditional Japanese style and heated with a central wood-burning stove and passive solar system.
The guest rooms are simple, yet comfortably furnished, with large windows opening onto landscaped grounds. Each pair of rooms shares a bathroom and there is a centrally located shower.
Snacks are always available in the guest house kitchen. Vegetarian meals are included in the price of the retreat.
Single rooms, including meals, are $325 until 8/31. After 8/31 $350. Optional Thursday night is $100. There is limited availability for this night. Please check with Margaret before you sign up for it.
Refunds will only be made if a substitute can be found. This retreat is available only to SCBWI members.
Note: The retreat begins at 3 PM Friday, and ends at 1 PM Sunday. The optional Thursday night begins at 3 PM on Thursday.
