Dedicated to nourishing the creative spirit in emerging or established women writers with non-interference or interruptions except for good food and  a room of her own.

Accommodations include daily meals, snacks, telephone, and local transport. 

Stay in a pine chalet in the woods in the mountain village of Crestline, California.

$250 a week, all inclusive with personal care and attention.

Only women seeking a quiet, private place in the country to work seriously on either playwriting, cinematic arts, non-fiction, creative fiction and poetry may apply.
