On FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd, 10am-4pm. Suzann and Richard are hosting the next free retreat. We are offering our sixth 2017 (freeWRITERS' RETREAT at their  beautiful home in Badger Hollow near Madison.

Badger Hollow is a great place for a Prairie Writers Tribe gathering.  A blue light swirls magic into hot water for tea and coffee in the open kitchen--come see.  Long views over the pastures and wooded hills from the windows, porch, and deck are perfect when that need to look up arises.  Three bedrooms, a loft, and a sewing room offer spaces apart or work in the vaulted great room or in the lower level log wall den.  A quarter mile driveway flanked with mown parking space makes a quiet walking path, too.

Begins at 10:00 am and goes till 4:00. Bring own lunch or and something to share. Enjoy the awakening inside and out. 

We share in conversation over lunch. I will make a traditional SHERPA SOUP!

At 3:00 we will have a sharing/closing circle. 

This is an opportunity too to meet up with other poets and writers.  I offer these days in remembrance, and as a way to honor the poet and essayist, William Stafford. He knew how valuable the written word is to our humanity and felt it worthwhile to support other writers and poets. He lived an open life.
