2015 Kidlit Mixer Retreat
Location: Breckenridge, CO
Dates: October 22 - 25, 2015
This retreat is open to published YA/MG authors and is an opportunity to come together and network, compare notes, and just relax in the glory of each others presence.
The format of the retreat is very relaxed. During the day there will be portions of the house reserved for working which means they are designated and fiercely guarded quiet zones. There will also be spaces available for networking or general noisiness.
All meals are group meals. We ask that you either assist in meal prep or kitchen clean-up once during the retreat. Upon arrival everyone will be given one kitchen shift for a pre-determined day and time. All shifts are teams, so you'll never be on your own!
After dinner we break into groups for evening discussion. These discussions are lead by a few veteran authors and are a chance to focus on how we think about our careers as writers. Once those discussions are over, the rest of the night is for fun -- dancing, hot tubbing, and even some crafting has been known to occur.
MEALS & DRINK
The kitchen is by and large a communal one with plenty of healthy and not-so-healthy snack options. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style; dinner is a more formal meal. Before your arrival, we will ask for any dietary restrictions and make all possible accommodations.
