Registration Rates

We welcome writers from near and far. We are happy to offer writers spacious, comfortable accommodations right on-site at the Auberge. And for writers who live nearby, we offer a special day rate that gives full access to the entire long-weekend retreat, without the overnight accommodations.

Regular Registration

Our regular registration rate includes tuition for the full retreat program, spacious private accommodations on-site at the Auberge (a former bed and breakfast), and locally-sourced meals throughout the retreat.
