The Wilburton Inn is opening its doors to novelists, memoir writers, poets, journalists, and bloggers with special writing retreat rates for the month of November to celebrate National Novel Writing Month.
"My aunt, Wendy Wasserstein, won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for her play The Heidi Chronicles, yet it was her confessional essays in The New Yorker that have resonated with me the most following her premature death in 2006.” says innkeeper, Melissa Levis. “Our hope is to offer writers an inexpensive country vacation surrounded by quiet and inspiring mountain views so that they can concentrate and write their masterpiece.”
The Wilburton Inn offers weekend, week long, 10 day, 2 week, 3 week, and month long residencies. Writers will stay in a private or shared room in a house with full access to a ktichen.

Writers will have access to a full kitchen, stunning views, and writing desks. There is a three-night minimum for this offer and writers must email their bio and links to their writing to qualify for these special rates. Writers should call the inn for further details.
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by midnight on November 30.
According to the non-profit’s website, “Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.”
