Step out of the slipstream of to-do lists and incoming mail to concentrate your energy on your pen.

Designed by fellow writers as a cocooned space to work without interruption, SilkCase offers established and aspiring writers the opportunity to inahbit a room of their own for a spell and turn all of their attention to their craft.   No laundry. No food preparation. No phone calls. 

Upon arrival, refreshments will be provided along with noise canceling headphones.  Turn off your cell phone and settle into your private suite or plug into one of our parlor spaces to begin penning.  

No name games or ice breakers.  Just you, your storyline and three other industrious writers.  

Quiet hours will be observed until 6:30 when a toast will be offered and an optional communal dinner a short stroll from our Victorian.  In the flow? Stay behind and keep working or take your own walkabout.

Return to the Arabella to log more writing, read for inspiration, or tuck into the privacy of your space.

In the morning, coffee and tea will be on hand along with a healthy continental spread to fuel you as you launch into another stretch of creativity.  Your sole purpose is to tune into your work while you are here, cocoon with your muses and set word to type.

Your time in October will be proctored by guest writer  Amari Amari.   

SilkCase begins at 2:30 on October 15th and draws to a close at noon on October 16th.  Space is limited to 3 writers.

$350 per writer includes afternoon refreshment, dinner, breakfast, light lunch, coffee, tea, water and overnight accommodations.
