I wish to select some of the activities (workshops, tours, and story concert) as indicated below, rather than enrolling as an in-residence Retreat Participant. I understand that Individual Author critique/consultation sessions must be scheduled separately (scroll down). I have ordered box lunches as indicated on the lunch order form.

If you wish to select the in-residence Retreat Option, do not complete this form. Complete the Retreat Registration form instead.

My activity selections are noted below. I understand that discounts available to members of select organizations* (see below) apply only for days on which I have selected more than one paid activity. (Scroll down to register for Individual Author Critique/Consultation Sessions and lunch order forms.) Note: In cases in which two workshops run simultaneously, you may select only one.
*Discounts available to members of Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Center, Story Circle of the Capital District, Lake George Arts Project, Adirondack Center for Writing and Woman's Club.
