The Book Project Writers Getaway

$0.00 Members
$0.00 Non-members

This optional retreat, limited to current Book Project members, includes three nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at the historic Hand Hotel in Fairplay, Colorado, with time for writing, thinking, reading, and sharing work with your fellow BP participants. The Hand has great mountain views and plenty of space for laptops, notebooks, and lounging by the fireplace. Book Project Director Bill Henderson will be on hand to coordinate meals and social activities. 

Food, lodging, and transportation are the responsibility of the attendees. Activities start with a group dinner on Friday, with other meals out-and-about in Fairplay and Alma, and readings and discussions by the fire on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. If you’re staying at the Hand, breakfast is included. Those staying off-site can purchase breakfast in advance for $8/day.

To join the Getaway, follow these steps:

  1. Sign up here to reserve your spot. The weekend is limited to 20 participants.
  2. Once you receive confirmation of your registration, call the Hand Hotel directly to reserve and pay for your room: (719) 836-3595. Say you’re with Lighthouse. Registration via the Lighthouse website alone does not register you for a room.

If the Hand Hotel is full, there are other local lodging options: the Riverside Inn Travelodge in Fairplay; the Treeline Hostel in Alma; and Airbnb or VRBO in the Fairplay/Alma areas.

Room sharing and carpooling encouraged!
