Many writers can’t get away for weeks at a time, but it’s great to have short bursts — like a full Saturday in early June — to devote to a project. Join authors Tara DaPra and Jennie Young for a full day of immersion into your writing project. The day will begin with goal setting and grounding writing prompts. The retreat includes sustained writing time, optional one-on-one conferences, group workshops, and will end with a celebratory reading. Lunch is provided, along with refreshments throughout the day.
