Dark Regions Press is hosting the chance of a lifetime for any horror fans and/or aspiring writers this year with a four day writer’s retreat at the legendary Stanley Hotel, where Stephen King was inspired to write his creepy masterpiece, The Shining. That’s right, this October 22nd-25th, the legendary hotel will be a temporary home to a gang of aspiring and inspiring horror authors in what can only be described as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Featuring some impressive guest authors like Jack Ketchum, Kealan Patrick Burke, Tom Piccirilli, and many more who will be available in various capacities depending on your needs and choice of package. Various plans of how to spend this time are available and completely up to you, whether you are interested in getting feedback from authors or would just like some isolated time alone to write in these iconic surroundings. For example, all of the packages include a tour of Room 217, but the top tier level buys you a four-hour block of undisturbed time alone in the dreadful room!
Be aware that the registration fees do not cover your hotel stay or travel arrangements, but do include group discounts and early access for tickets to the Murder Mystery Dinner and The Shining Masquerade Ball (!), two events that seem like they are not to be missed.
The current indiegogo campaign has nearly reached it’s goal, but check it out to see the various perks available, and reserve your room now!
You can also find The Stanley Hotel Writer’s Retreat on Facebook for more information and updates over the months leading up to the event.
I know I am packing up my adult tricycle for my stay, so look out for me tearing down the halls this October!
See you there!
