Cambridge Writer’s Workshop is excited to announce that we are returning to Château de Verderonne from August 7-20, 2014. This trip is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and we’ve launched a Kickstarter Campaign to make the trip as accessible and memorable as possible for our participants. From now until July 3rd, you can help back the trip and help us reach our goal of $5,000. The breakdown of this is simple: $3,000 to help fund scholarships for students and people from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds; $1,000 for in-country transportation fees including van rentals, train tickets, and hiring drivers for cultural trips; and $1,000 for instructor fees and overhead charges.
If you decide to contribute to the Kickstarter, CWW has lined up some great incentives for backers. The minimum donation is $1, and the more that’s donated, the better the rewards. $25 gets the backer yearly membership to Cambridge Writer’s Workshop NING on-line writer’s community network. Visual artists Elissa Lewis and Victor Pachas have contributed stunning pieces of handmade art to be given to those who donate $125. Those who donate $400 receive a personalized writing consultation and review of creative work, and for a $1000 contribution, the backer receives a personalized writing and yoga consultation. The highest contribution available is $3,200, which guarantees the backer a fully paid seat at the 2014 retreat, either for themselves or as a gift.
This is a great opportunity to show your support for Cambridge Writer’s Workshop and the writing community it helps foster. You can learn more about our Kickstarter Program here, and if you have any further questions, please contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign-ups for the retreat are open until June 15th if you or someone you know is interested in applying.
Thank you for you continued interest and support!
