Spring Lit-Away


Thanks for your interest! Applications for the Spring Lit-Away are currently closed. We hope you’ll keep us in mind next year!

Lit Literary Collective is pleased to announce its first writers’ retreat, the 2018 Spring Lit-Away. The retreat will run from 3:00 pm Friday, May 4 through 5:00 pm on Sunday, May 6. The magic will happen at the “Sand House” in Harbert, Michigan, just footsteps away from Lake Michigan and an easy drive from Chicago, South Bend, and Grand Rapids.

Prices are $225 for a single room and $175 for a shared room (with two twin beds — one room has bunk beds!). The cost includes two nights’ lodging with all amenities, all meals, instruction and leadership, writing supplies, and written materials and resources. The full, nonrefundable fee is due by April 15, 2018. Limited financial assistance is available for those with stated need.

This retreat is special in that, instead of prescribed, set programming, it’s designed to meet the specific needs and interests of the accepted applicants. In other words, to the best of our ability, it will be just the retreat you need!

Applications will be accepted throughout the month of March. Accepted applicants will be informed by April 4. Questions can be directed to retreat@litliterary.com.
