People write for three main reasons: for personal journals, for specific audiences/business presentations, and for publication. This retreat is open to writers of every genre, with an emphasis on non-fiction and memoir. Sharpen writing skills, attend daily workshops, relax with secluded views of mountains and river, enjoy meals and plenty of breaks, and be energized by the support and guidance. For those interested, there’ll be an overview of the publication process. Enjoy the solitude and time. You will be inspired.
Date & Time: Thurs., Nov. 1 at 5pm through Sun., Nov. 4 at 1pm
Presenter: Magie Dominic
Fee: $350 for the weekend includes all meals and accommodations and the program.
