Join author and teacher Joni B. Cole for this retreat, which will help you cultivate a healthy and productive creative process that will serve you now, and for the rest of your writing life. You’ll learn tips and techniques to get started and stay motivated. You’ll receive quality instruction on craft. You’ll also find inspiration and generate new material through writing prompts and other forms of sustenance, most notably gathering within a supportive community.

As part of the retreat, everyone is encouraged to bring 3 to 4 pages of writing to share for appreciation and quality critique. Both nervous beginners and seasoned authors are welcome—this workshop meets you where you’re at in your writing life, and moves you forward from there. Minimum participation 5. Max 8. Please leave your inner critic at home. (Bring a brown bag lunch; beverages and snacks provided.)
