At our international week-long writers’ retreats, our authors lead small group workshops in fiction and nonfiction. Your manuscript is closely read by the workshop leader and others in your group. Guided by your workshop leader, each manuscript is discussed to discover what could make it an even more effective literary piece. Critiques are moderated in the communal spirit of writers reading and supporting other writers. There are also talks & discussions on writing craft, as well as informal sharing of our work. We offer an opportunity for all participants to reflect upon the writing life and its challenges. Personal writing time is factored into the daily schedule.
