2016 Stanley Hotel Writers Retreat

Sep 13 15

Happy autumn! I’m looking forward to Halloween, of course. And I’m already looking ahead to a special event in October of 2016 as well, which I hope I’ll be able to attend – finally!

The Stanley Hotel Writers Retreat will be held at the historic place in Estes Park, Colorado that inspired Stephen King to write “The Shining.” Author R.J. Cavender has started a contribution site on Indiegogo to fund the convention for writers, readers and artists alike.

Go here to check it out and contribute.

Save the dates: October 20 – 23, 2016. One special guest will be novelist Chuck Palahniuk. Other events taking place during that weekend will be the Murder Mystery Dinner and the Shining Masquerade Ball.

Info excerpt from the website:

Your registration does include all our group discount perks, select editing packages, inclusion on any outings/trips over the weekend, author events, and a guaranteed party in Room 217. Starting this year all Stanley Hotel Writers Retreat guests who purchase an editing package will also receive a FREE TICKET to our special late-night ghost hunt and writing exercise, The Overnight Paranormal Write in the haunted Concert Hall at The Stanley Hotel. Stay through Sunday, write with ghosts!

It all sounds fabulous to me. Take my advice and start planning your trip today!
