WORDSMITH WORKSHOP RETREATS
I work with award-winning author Cristin Terrill to host a series of writing workshop retreats around America. We’ve visited coast-to-coast for these all-inclusive intensively crafted retreats. For five days, 14 participants stay with us (and our private chef!) at a serene guest house. In the mornings, Cristin and I teach workshops on writing craft, getting an agent, and the ins-and-outs of publishing. We have guest appearances (live or via Skype) with agents and other published authors. In the evening, participants get a critique from both Cristin and I–Cristin focuses on the prose of your first pages of your manuscript, and I help critique the plot structure of your entire book. And between all of that, you have serene writing time in various cozy nooks around the house (or a chance to relax and take it all in).
Many of our participants are now agented and book deals for past retreaters are happening! We have a *very* high return rate, and cap our participants at 14 per retreat, so our retreats tend to fill up very fast. To check on availability, sign up for our newsletter (so you’ll be alerted to our next retreat), or read testimonials from dozens of our past participants, click here.
An important announcement about upcoming events
Beth is currently dealing with an on-going family medical situation that will require her loved one, for whom she is the sole caretaker, to undergo a heart transplant. Being on the transplant list means being uncertain about timing and events. While she does not want to halt all events during what will likely be a years-long process, it is important to note that, in the event that a transplant becomes available during an event, Beth will cancel to be with her family. She thanks you in advance for understanding.
