The inspiring four-day, three-night weekend of workshops, readings, and writing is takes place at the idyllic Shoreline Camps on Big Lake in Grand Lake Stream, a town with a population of just over 100 in northeast Maine near the Canadian border.

Afternoons will be open for writing and optional individual meetings with the instructors. In addition to the intensive workshops and one-on-one sessions, the weekend will include faculty and participant readings.

Each cabin includes its own bathroom, a living room, an equipped kitchen, fresh linens, blankets, and bath towels. Each cabin includes a wood stove and outdoor fireplace with complementary firewood.
