Another successful retreat is behind us. Stay tuned for the next Creating a Writing Life Retreat or workshop.

This year we welcome authors Gerri Brousseau and Marian Lanouette. Gerri has published three historical fiction novels and is a former sky diver who will share her own free fall into the writing life. Marian is the author of three mystery thrillers and will be with us to discuss the mystery of publishing.  Bring your questions for this up close and personal opportunity to hear how   they created their own writing life.
