The Idlewild Writers Retreat offers writers creative space and community. Our retreat is held in the scenic Quiet Corner of Connecticut each autumn. Our 2018 retreat will be held October 5-8, with discounted early registration rates available.

Our program offers creative time and space to write, along with opportunities to enjoy community with fellow writers. Our retreat is held at a historic house (and former bed and breakfast), which offers beautiful spaces to write and to gather together, along with spacious accommodations. Writers will enjoy simple community meals sourced from local farms and markets, quiet time to engage with their own work, evening readings, workshops on mindfulness and creativity, and optional guided writing sessions. Our retreat is located in a scenic rural corner of northeast Connecticut, in an area known for its hiking trails and natural beauty, and its vibrant arts community and antique centers. Our retreat has direct backyard access to the Airline Trail, making it ideal for enjoying autumn here in New England. To learn more, please visit or reach out to us at
