This writers' haven offers a variety of courses for aspiring or experienced writers. They also offer cooking classes. I took "A Writer Progresses" which is 5 days of intensive writing. Carol Topolski was our author in residence. She and Wayne Milstead (who with Aaron runs The Circle of Misse), provided invaluable feedback and encouragement. Classes are very small and supportive. The cost of this particular course includes everything - food, stimulating side trips, and lodging. Aaron prepared us fabulous gourmet meals.
The retreat house is an ancient stone abode that is lovingly decorated and maintained. You have the choice of staying at a local b and b or at the retreat house. I stayed at the house and it was a great experience.The gardens are beautiful and tables are set up for writing there in the warmer weather. My only regret is how far away this little gem is
from Chicago - I miss it already!
