Aspiring writers and dark sky enthusiasts are invited to join authors Paul Bogard and Kim Cross at the Sawtooth Writing Retreat on Sept. 19-22 to elevate their writing skills and connect with a community of writers.

Set in the heart of America’s first International Dark Sky Reserve near Ketchum, Idaho, the retreat offers:

  • Hiking and fly fishing on property (participants must bring their own fishing gear)
  • Star-gazing through professional telescopes with experienced astronomers
  • Campfire lectures and readings

Sign up for the retreat by Aug. 15.

The retreat is presented by Boise State’s Hemingway Center, a cultural and artistic hub that supports a variety of readings, performances, events and educational experiences for students and the community.
