year, NightWriters is offering something new – a just-completed
writer’s cottage! Set back behind Phyllis Theroux’s
house in Ashland, Virginia, the cottage is intended for someone
who wants to get away for a few days or weeks to focus upon a particular
project. NightWriters for One combines quiet independence with daily
editorial assistance from Phyllis who is only a few steps across
the garden from your cottage door.
The cozy, board-and-bat
bungalow is all on one floor, with a separate bedroom, full bath,
computer-equipped writing alcove, kitchen facilities, dining area
and living room with a bay window overlooking the garden. A side
door opens onto a private sitting area. Centrally heated and air-conditioned,
it is furnished with things that most writers need: books, magazines,
music, a coffee pot and refrigerator, a comfortable sofa for taking
naps - and a built-in editor.
