Last year's info below. Registration for the 2015 Getaway will open by 8/25/2014.

The Getaway was founded on the belief that when writers leave behind the distractions of their busy lives to gather in an encouraging community, they are able to make important breakthroughs in their writing. Each workshop will meet for 15 hours and will offer craft discussion, writing prompts, writing time, feedback, motivation and inspiration. By spending the entire weekend in one workshop, participants will venture deeper into their writing, making more progress than they thought possible.

Join us at the Jersey Shore during the holiday weekend honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to write a few poems, start your memoir, work on your novel or simply to nurture your inner artist. Choose from 17 workshops in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir and more.

"This was possibly the best weekend I've had since my wedding. I learned more, wrote more and most importantly wrote *better* in two and a half days than I had at other retreats and conferences that were over a week long."
