SHERIDAN — “Hemingway’s Wyoming,” a weekend writing retreat, will take place Aug. 12-14.
Ernest Hemingway had a longtime love affair with Wyoming, visiting ranches and hotels across the state in the 1920s and 1930s, including the Sheridan Inn. This summer, the porch of the Sheridan Inn will serve as a gathering spot for a small group of writers attending the retreat.
Darla Worden will host the weekend workshop. She is the founder and director of the annual Left Bank Writers Retreat in Paris. Worden grew up in Sheridan.
The cost to participate in the weekend retreat is $230 per person, which includes a welcome cocktail Friday evening at the Sheridan Inn, the writing workshop, transportation to Spear-O-Wigwam and back, a picnic lunch, a cocktail hour on Saturday, lunch on Sunday and an optional polo match in Big Horn. Writers are responsible for their own overnight lodging.
The group is limited to eight participants.
