26th Annual Woodtick Poetry Retreat: July 17th-July 20th



On Horseshoe Lake

Retreat to Susan Stevens Chambers “cabin”

Merrifield, Minnesota

Thursday, July 17th through Sunday July 20, 2014

Each poet should bring food and at least a thirty minute program.  This can be a writing workshop, talk on writing forms, a reading from a famous poet.  Let your imagination run wild!  Be sure and bring your own poems for many sessions of “read-arounds”.

Casual dress, you may be asked to deliver your program in the woods or on the beach. Bring a swimsuit and long sleeves to fight off mosquitoes in the evening.  You may be asked to share a room with a roommate. You do not need to bring linens or towels.  Everyone pitches in with the clean up.

Please let me know arrival plans and what you want to bring for your food so I can coordinate rooms, food etc, the earlier the better!   Most participants arrive sometime on Thursday p.m. or Friday.

Contact Susan Chamber at to register and for direction or any other questions you may have.
