Life Writing/Memoir: A Weekend Retreat for Writers

October 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - October 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am


Believe In Your Story; You are the Best One to Write It!
There are three main reasons to write: to write for yourself, to write for an audience, or to write for the public. This weekend writing retreat, with a focus on creative writing and memoir, is centered on the belief that when writers leave behind the distractions of their busy lives and gather in a supportive community, they can make important breakthroughs in their writing.

The weekend will offer daily workshops, craft discussion, writing prompts, feedback, motivation, inspiration, and time to work on new or existing projects. Writers will sharpen their writing skills, meet other exceptional writers, take walks with a view of the mountains and river, and have time for meals and plenty of breaks.

This retreat is for writers of every genre. Whether you are a beginner writer or an experienced author, you will be energized by the support, literary guidance, relaxation and encouragement. Believe in your story – you are the best one to write it!

Date & Time: Friday, Oct. 6 at 5 pm to Monday, Oct. 9 at 10 am (all meals included)
Presenter: Magie Dominic
Fee: $350 (includes meals)
Registration deposit is $75; full payment due by Sept. 27
