Enjoy five days of uninterrupted writing time at UCLA's exceptional conference facility on Lake Arrowhead.

Give yourself the gift of time to write in a serene setting far away from the demands of your daily life. Join a small group of committed writers for four full days of uninterrupted writing time at UCLA’s beautiful conference center at Lake Arrowhead. Participants will enjoy private bedrooms, private baths, and three gourmet meals each day, along with complimentary beverages all day long. The Writers’ Program will coordinate some structured activities, including pre-dinner social hours and nightly open mic events, but your time will ultimately be yours to accomplish your writing goals at your own pace.

Students arrive at 4 pm on September 10 and depart at noon on September 15. Each student shares a furnished condolet with a housemate, though each student has a private bedroom and bath. There is free access to WiFi at the conference center.
