Winter Writer's Retreat

Need to get away to focus on finishing or starting a new work? The HBMG Foundation, the Human Stage and Creede Repertory Theatre are welcoming writers to their community in Colorado. For free.

We want to share our winter with any playwright who is ready to work. Artists who qualify will be encouraged to submit a piece to CRT’s Headwater’s Festival for new works.
That’s right. Nestled in between the cliffs of this winter wonderland is a LORT D Theatre boasting some of the best performances in Colorado. But they only have a summer season. So HBMG Foundation & Human Stage will partner with CRT this winter to bring writers to work. You’ll stay in CRT housing, meet with CRT’s artistic director, have dinner with CRT staff and friends, and potentially have an opportunity to have your play read out loud by several lingering actors who have stayed the winter.
Details: You are welcome to stay and write for one week during the Dec 7- Feb 13 timeframe. If you can get yourself here and get yourself fed, we’ll provide the gorgeous scenery, and CRT will provide accommodations. You are welcome to bring an actor or a director with you – for readings or planning pow wows.

To apply for your "week of writing getaway,” contact Ann at Introduce yourself professionally and personally, and include details on what you’ll be writing and the dates you would be interested in staying!
