Let the woods and water of Northern Minnesota inspire you at the annual Woodtick Poetry Writing Retreat on Horseshoe Lake, Merrifield, MN, held Thursday, July 20 through Sunday, July 23. Join fellow poets for writing, reading, presenting, swimming and swatting mosquitoes. Bring food, your poems, a swimsuit, and a long-sleeved shirt for evening wear. Towels and bed linens will be provided, but housekeeping is a shared responsibility.

Each poet should be prepared to lead a 30-minute (or longer) writing workshop or discussion on a topic of their choosing, and we will have several read-around sessions to share poetry. We’ve tentatively scheduled an evening junket to a nearby coffee shop, bar, or art center for a reading.

Contact Sue Chambers at schambersmediator@yahoo.com as soon as possible so she can coordinate rooms and meals.
