Writing for Children Weekend Workshop


Participants in this workshop weekend will be staying in the Days Inn Hotel of Liberty, NY, which is about 2 hours north of New York City, in Sullivan County. Days Inn is a full-service hotel with all amenities, including free breakfast and an on-site fitness center. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

To reserve a room, do not book online. Instead, use the discounted room block we have set up for you (standard room, one queen bed). Call 1-845-292-7600 and tell them you’re with the Elizabeth Ayres Writing Retreat. Your room rate is $128/night. There are also suites and double-occupancy rooms available with a different price structure – if you want one of these, please contact Elizabeth Ayres to make arrangements.


If you’re driving...
The hotel website has driving directions available.

If you’re flying…
The closest NYC airport would be Newark, New Jersey. You would need to arrange for car service or a shuttle to the hotel in Liberty, New York.

If you’re taking the bus…
The Shortline Bus leaves from Port Authority and goes to Liberty. The bus stops directly in front of the hotel, but ask Shortline what the exact destination would be if you want to stop in front of the Days Inn Hotel.

PLEASE NOTE: Your workshop sessions will be located at the home/studio of Helena Clare Pittman. If you don’t have a car, she’ll pick you up at your hotel and bring you to and from her studio, about 5 ‘country miles’ from the hotel.

ALLERGY ALERT: Helena has 3 cats. If you’re allergic to cats, this workshop won’t work for you!
