Do You NEED a Last-Minute Writers Retreat to Finish a Project?

You all know how I love writers conferences and retreats because they can work for writers in so many ways. This comes from a long time subscriber to my #SharingwithWriters newsletter, literary anthology editor, and author advocate Monika Rose:

Dear Writers, 
It's not too late!  The Tuolumne Writers Retreat is coming last weekend of Sept. – the 25th through the 27th.  Antoinette May and Jim Fletcher are featured speakers – they will be sharing information about their new books, the writing process, and more.

Antoinette May is leading two workshops – “The first five pages of the novel you were born to sell” and “Writing your historical novel.” Jennifer Hoffman and Lou Gonzalez are leading a workshop on eBook marketing. Blanche Abrams is leading a workshop on character called Qwerkshop. Monika is leading workshops on manuscript preparation for poetry collections and on flash fiction.  And Connie Strawbridge, book designer, will be speaking about formatting and readying manuscripts for publication. Plus so many more cool topics on the list!

 You will love Lorenzo Baca and Joy Willow’s spoken word performances – as well as storyteller Cynthia Restivo and also Pat Kaunert as Mark Twain.  Carol Biederman will steer us into a haunting evening with ghost tales at the cemetery by flashlight Friday night.   Please forward this to people you think would be interested – thanks so much!


PS: California's weather is spectacular right now!
