2011 Mother Words™ Writing Retreat
February 24 - 27, 2011
You'll write, share your writing, discuss challenges with craft, and have time to connect with other mother writers in the luxury and quiet of Faith's Lodge. Group meetings and individual conferences will help support you as you delve more deeply into your writing and learn to take risks on the page. Come immerse yourself in the writing life with other mothers who write.
Where: Faith's Lodge, Wisconsin
Faith's Lodge is located on 80 picturesque acres in Northwestern Wisconsin near the town of Webster, less than a two-hour drive from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, less than one hour from Duluth/Superior, and about four hours from Madison. The mission of Faith's Lodge is to provide a place where parents and families facing the serious illness or loss of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present, and build hope for the future.
You need not have experienced the loss of a child to attend the retreat. The Mother Words Retreat is for all mother writers. (But proceeds from the Mother Words Writing Retreat will benefit the children and families served by Faith's Lodge.)
The Lodge has eight guest suites, and we can accommodate up to 10 people for the Mother Words Retreat. Each guest suite features a private bath, fireplace, balcony/patio, flat screen tv, DVD player, small fridge, and coffee maker. Meals are included.

Here's a quick look at the Vikings’ quarterback situation, under the assumption — and it is only an assumption — that Bridgewater is out of action for a while.
The quarterback was taken from Winter Park by ambulance. Asked if Bridgewater would play again this season, coach Mike Zimmer said, "It doesn't look good right now."
About 25 minutes into practice, Bridgewater dropped back in the pocket but crumpled to the turf, seemingly without being touched. Coach Mike Zimmer ended practice.
That is, if she ever has another news conference.
Let's not recklessly lose sight of the vulnerable people it serves. Don't shut it down. Find a middle ground.
