Lori L. Lake's Writing
Women's Writing Retreat
At Colonyhouse/Brecht House
Rockaway Beach, Oregon
You have a story that wants to be written,
but think you have no time to write it. Or you tell yourself you'll
"get around to it, someday"... Well, someday has arrived!
It's time for new beginnings. Give yourself the gift of dedicated
time to get the words out of your head and onto the page. Memoir,
novels, poetry, or essays--all topics and types of women writers
are welcome to read, write, revise, and reflect.
The retreat will be led by multi-published author
Lori L. Lake including meals, which will allow you to concentrate
on your craft. You'll enjoy healthy, tasty food, lots of quiet,
and the support of other writers to encourage you to let your words
flow. Come together at mealtimes to share your progress or your
challenges, or just to relax in the creative energy and camaraderie.
