Cancellation policy: 

We fully understand that life throws everyone a curveball now and again.  We also hope that the writers invited to Moss Wood will understand that, given the singularly small nature of our retreat, withdrawals can be especially problematic. We therefore need to adhere to the policy that we are unable to refund deposits after April 1.
