explain the shared rooms?

Our Rates and Policies page has a more detailed breakdown of the accommodations offered, and you’ll find that here. Most rooms are private and include a writing desk, along with comfortable sleeping quarters. There are also a few shareable rooms—one with two twin beds, and another with two full beds and a curtain divider to open or close as desired.

Yes. Couples have the option of choosing the shared or semi-private room, or taking one of the private rooms with a double bed. In the case of the latter, each person would pay the shared room rate.


Because of our incredible teachers and limited space, we expect workshops to sell out quickly. Cancellations are both disruptive and time consuming, so please only enroll if you are certain of your ability to attend. In the unlikely case of a cancellation on our end, full refunds will be immediately issued. *The following dates apply to the Narrative Alchemy workshop.





With the exception of service animals, we ask that you please leave furry friends at home.


All indoor facilities are nonsmoking.

What should I bring?

February in Hudson is likely to be very cold and snowy. We think this will make our gorgeous location feel even more cozy and charming. Be sure to bring warm, comfortable clothing including snow boots, hats and gloves. Registrants will receive an email full of tips and pointers on what to pack.

Is narrative alchemy a good fit for my writing level?

This workshop is open to writers of all levels of experience. However, those who opt to share their writing in workshop should be comfortable with the workshop critique model. Our Instructors are experts at making sure that every student is met—and challenged—at their own level.

Talk to me about food?

We’ve engaged an incredible area caterer for this workshop, and feel confident saying that every meal will be delicious. Expect fresh, local, organic and yummy! We will do our best to work with any dietary restrictions that are communicated to us in advance. That said, we do not recommend using this weekend to launch a brand new diet. Let yourself enjoy the comfort of our beautiful space and fabulous food—so that you can focus on your writing practice.
