Next week, three Eraserhead Press authors, Cameron Pierce , Mykle Hansen and Carlton Mellick III will be going to the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon for a three day writing marathon. The hotel is a very unique spot, named in honor of Sylvia Beach (Shakespeare and Company) each room is themed after a different author and decorated accordingly (like the Edgar Allan Poe room pictured above, complete with pendulum above the bed).
This is one of my absolute favorite spots on the Oregon coast and is perfect for book lovers. In addition to the awesome themed guest rooms they have a large sitting room with a fireplace and ocean view, a library in the attic, they serve spiced wine in the evenings and there are a couple of sweet kittens that have the run of the place.
Cameron Pierce author of Bizarro Fiction novels Shark Hunting in Paradise Garden and Ass Goblins of Auschwitz will be completing his next book, The Pickled Apocalypse of Pancake Island. He is currently seeking sponsors for this writing marathon. If you would like to contribute, here’s how the sponsorship levels break down:

“For years, I’ve dreamed of going out to Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon for a three day writing retreat. It sounds like the most fantastic place. Every room is themed after a different author, from Edgar Allan Poe to Dr. Seuss, Gertrude Stein to Ernest Hemingway. This is the first opportunity I’ve ever had to go there, and it’s the last opportunity I’ll have for a few years.”
Thank you, and please spread the word!
