A Summer Retreat for Writers: Find Inspiration, Contemplation, and Creativity

July 8 @ 5:00 pm - July 12 @ 1:00 pm

This summer retreat for writers is divided into daily workshops and craft discussion; feedback and motivation; writing prompts and inspiration; time to work on new and existing projects; and time to relax with a secluded view of the mountains and river.  The retreat is open to writers of every genre. Whether your writing is for personal journals or for publication, there are aspects we all share as writers.

When we go outside of our daily routine, leave behind the disruptions of our busy lives and gather in a supportive community, we make important breakthroughs in our life and in our writing. Included in the retreat will be a discussion of publication – how to, where to, and when to, and information about publishers who are regularly looking for work.

Writers will sharpen writing skills, meet other exceptional writers, have time to relax in a quiet peaceful environment, and enjoy meals and plenty of breaks. You will be energized by the support, literary guidance, relaxation, and encouragement. Enjoy the peaceful summer surroundings and literary inspiration at your own individual pace. Believe in your stories, you are the best one to write them!

Date & Time: Wed., July 8 at 5pm through Sun. July 12 at 1pm

Presenter: Magie Dominic

Fee: $525 (all inclusive)
