Important things to know:
"I laughed, I cried, I became a better writer."
"The biggest highlight for me was a rediscovered passion for writing. Yes, I learned tools and perspectives that I can apply back at work. But seeing other writers – masters and word wrights – playing with words and ideas, discussing literature and how words work made quite an impression on me. It changed writing from an intellectual challenge back to an emotional joy.I laughed, I cried, I became a better writer."

Ricketson's Point House
On the shores of Apponagansett Bay, our seven bedroom house is in the heart of Padanaram Village. This Grand Dame sits on an acre of land and offers wonderful water views from almost every room. The ideal place for a reunion, a getaway or, a writing workshop. Walk to shops and restaurants, or hit the beaches and nature trails. The house is four hours from New York City, ninety minutes from Boston, a half-hour from Providence and about 40 minutes to Cape Cod. A classic New England cottage in the land of Dickinson, Thoreau, Hawthorne and Melville.
"I like good strong words that mean something," wrote the American writer Louisa May Alcott, who owned a summer home in Nonquitt, just a stone toss across the water from Ricketson's Point House.
By car, Ricketson's Point House is four-and-a-half hours from New York City, ninety minutes from Boston and twenty-five minutes from Providence. Flying into Providence will ease the travel burden.
