We have dates

If you like planning for the future, we have writing days for 2022 and 2023.

Our next writing days will be:

May 21, 2022

Nov. 5, 2022

May 20, 2023

Nov. 4, 2023

We plan to do day-long sessions at the lodge here. We’ll let you know when registration is open for each event.

Reboot your writing on Nov. 13

We’re back with our annual fall writing retreat at the LS lodge on Nov. 13. Our COVID-rules apply again. Bring your own writing gear, your own snacks and lunch, and your own mask.

We’ll open the doors at 8:30 a.m., start writing quietly at 9, break for lunch at noon and resume writing at 1. Clean up will be at 4 p.m.

As always, we need reservations in advance. Send your name, phone, email and home town to lswritinggals@gmail.com. The deadline to sign up is Nov. 10. We’ll send a confirmation email and more details Nov. 11.

We welcome writers of any genre and any level. We get together away from the demands of our homes for a day devoted to our craft.

There’s no wifi at the lodge, so it’s an ideal place to concentrate on writing, planning or editing. But if you need to be connected, bring your own hotspot. And you may want an extension cord to be sure you can reach an outlet.

It’s still free. Just sign up early to be sure you have a seat.

We’re heading back to the lodge — Aug. 2

Now that most of us have been vaccinated for the coronavirus, we’re moving back to the lodge for in-person meetings.

It’s been a little hit-or-miss as we get used to having to be in one place at the same time. (There were some advantages to meeting online. We could be anywhere.)

We plan to be there next on Aug. 2. If things go according to plan, we’ll start at 7 p.m.

If you have a work-in-progress, bring a few pages to share with us. We’ll try to provide gentle but honest critiques, as well as cheer you on.

We’ve made some changes for the pandemic

If you’d like to join us when we get together, we’re meeting online instead of in the Lake Summerset lodge most first and third Mondays at 7 p.m. Let us know you’d like to join us no later than Wednesday the week before our meeting. It may take time to add you to our group. 

If you like to write, feel free to check us out. Bring your own beverage — soda, water, lemonade, hot chocolate, coffee, tea — to your favorite chair at home.

Interested in writing?

We’re a group of women who like to write. Some of us are published. Some of us aren’t. But we support each other, whatever stage of writing we’re at, as we work to improve our craft.

We meet at 7 p.m. the first and third Monday of each month (with a few holiday exceptions) at the Lake Summerset lodge. If you’re interested in knowing more, send us your question and we’ll try our best to answer it quickly.

If you’re interested in meeting us, we’re kicking off 2017 tonight. If you live at the lake, drive by.
