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."
- Doug Howatt, Creative Director, Writing Hitachi Vantara
On the southern tip of Apponagansett Bay, our nine bedroom house at Nonquit is quintessential New England. It's pristine, quirky, and secluded -- built in 1873. It's an ideal spot for a writing workshop. It's right on the water, and about a five minute drive to the village of Padanaram and its shops, restaurants, and cafes. The house is four hours from New York City, ninety minutes from Boston, fifty minutes from Providence, and about 40 minutes to Cape Cod. A classic New England cottage in the land of Louisa May Alcott, Dickinson, Thoreau, Hawthorne and Melville.
"I like good strong words that mean something," wrote the American writer Alcott, who owned a summer home in Nonquitt.
By car, the Nonquitt House is four-and-a-half hours from New York City, ninety minutes from Boston, and about fifty minutes from Providence. Flying into Providence will ease the travel burden by a great deal. Note: the Providence airport is a few miles outside of Providence.
