Wilderness House Literary Retreat

Right now, me and several members from the Boston-area literary community are involved in recruiting for the board and faculty of this new literary retreat
scheduled to be in operation next Summer. It is owned and managed by the New England Foresty Service in cooperation with the Littleton Rotary Club ( contact: Steven Glines 617-549-7274)
"Wilderness House" is 7-bedroom cabins built in the early 20th Century as a sportsman retreat by a large and wealthy family. Situated deep within several hundred acres of forest, it also is near Littleton's Long Lake, where a private dock
is located.

The Literary Retreat offers a series of intense literary workshops lead by an acknowledged literary master of their genre. Each week a different literary genre will be presented. There may be poets one week, playwrights the next, etc... There will never be more than 15 participants.

Currently we have contacted poets and writers with national reputations to be on our board. Already several have agreed to serve on our board and or our faculty.
Currently the "Wilderness House" is being renovated, and we anticipate having a reception there in the Fall. If you are interesting about getting more information or attending this retreat contact: Steven Glines 1-978-952-6340
