Just Poets is always enthusiastic about spending an autumn day at the Gell Center. We had another awesome retreat; the lodge and its surroundings are a perfect place for us. We made coffee in the kitchen, then settled around the fire in the morning to write, moved to the dining area to sit together for lunch, enjoyed walks up the hill in the early afternoon to write some more under the trees. We held a reading of poems at the end to mark the day. Thanks for supplying a great facility to us.
