Stratford Hall invites applications for the winter and spring writing retreats.

We offer a space and place for academic and independent writers, to focus in a contemplative setting that inspires productivity and community. Stratford Hall is located on Virginia’s Northern Neck, and sits on the cliff of the Potomac River.

While you do not have to be an academic professional to apply, the 4-7 day retreats are designed in concert with most academic calendars, providing a selection of short retreats to work on a project during the winter and spring break periods.
Writers will arrive on Sunday, and depart Saturday morning, unless you chose the mini retreat, in which case you would depart Wednesday afternoon.

2019 Retreat Dates:
Session A: January 6-12
Session B: March 3-9
Session C: March 10-16
Session D: March 17-23

In the email indicate which retreat session you prefer, a short one-page letter of intent (project summary and stage of completion), and attach a PDF of your updated c.v. to the following email:
*Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, until all rooms are booked.
