The site of the retreat is a private resort in Alcona County, between Lake Huron and Hubbard Lake.
The lodge at Lost Lake Woods Club, where the events took place, overlooks a small lake bordered by forest.

The 2016 Lost Lake Writers Retreat was directed by John D. Lamb of Springfed Arts, another 501(c)3 nonprofit that has held weekly writing classes in the metro Detroit area for two decades.
