Mentor in the House Weekend with James Bernard Frost

August 27-28

Award-winning novelist and travel writer James Bernard Frost will be offering private one-on-one mentoring as part of our Mentor in the House weekend program. Writers working on novels, short fiction, or travel pieces should consider this unique opportunity to work closely with an accomplished author.

For the weekend, Mr. Frost will live and write at the Colonyhouse, a historic log cabin on the Oregon Coast at Rockaway Beach, and will be available for personally tailored hour-long consultations with each retreat participant. In addition to plenty of time to write over the weekend, an optional Saturday night sharing allows participants to workshop their writing in a relaxed atmosphere with the mentor and other retreat-goers.
The cost of the retreat is $150 for Oregon Writers Colony members, and $190 for non-members. This price includes shared lodging at the Colonyhouse. Participants are expected to provide their own food and bedding. A communal meal may be arranged with the consent of the mentor.

James Bernard Frost is the author of two novels, World Leader Pretend (St. Martin’s Press, 2007) and the forthcoming A Very Minor Prophet (Hawthorne Books, 2012). His non-fiction travel guide, The Artichoke Trail, won a Lowell Thomas Award for Travel Journalism. He has taught writers in several venues, and currently directs the Basement Writing Workshop.
Note: This is a cooperative project with Basement Writing Workshop.
