The fee for a Moss Wood Retreat is all inclusive: lodging, meals, beverages, author sessions, workshops, critiques, readings, day sail, recreational (kayaks, rowboats, fishing gear).  There are no add-on charges, no end of retreat surprises.

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 following cancellation policy:

Deposit refund: The deposit may be refunded until January 1, 2017, less a $100.00 administration fee.

Payment for the retreat may be refunded no later than April 1, 2017, less a $200.00 administration fee.

Registrations cancelled after April 1 will result in loss of only the deposit amount if we are able to fill your slot from our wait list.  If we are unable to fill the spot, there will be an additional charge; we will do our best to equitably resolve this cost with you.
