Join us for the inauguration of Lighthouse’s new traveling retreat, Rekindle. Our kickoff program will be in Juneau, Alaska. This generative retreat will feature a blend of ample writing time, local exploration, manuscript feedback from seasoned writers and teachers, and connection with other adventurous writers.

We’ll be staying in the historic Baranof Hotel, close to the capital city’s coffee shops, restaurants, watering holes, library, beach, and hiking trails. Optional afternoon activities include rain forest hike and writes (including one to the Mendenhall Glacier), writing-centric cultural and literary visits, and a Tracy Arm Fjord cruise to see glaciers, humpback whales, orcas, and grizzly bears (from the safety of the shore-hugging boat). Adventurous travelers can also privately seek out tours such as salmon fishing, dog sledding, whale watching, etc. Or simply bask in the scenery and write your masterpiece.

Tuition includes: hotel lodging for two in a private with a private bathroom, group welcome breakfast for two, daily in-room continental breakfasts, daily optional activities including transit and faculty instruction, an optional review of 3,000 to 5,000 words of each of your manuscripts and 30-minute one-on-one consultation with an instructor, farewell dinner, limited shuttle service to and from the airport, time and space to write, and the welcoming and inclusive Lighthouse community.

This year's instructors are Rachel Weaver and Erika Krouse. The full cost of a double booking at the retreat is $5,900. Payment plans available at (303) 297-1185. A $500 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your space.
