You have a life story to share, you know what you want to write and you are writing as well as you can, but something isn’t clicking. What is the problem?

Every writer needs feedback from an editor, a teacher and from colleagues. Writing is a solitary pursuit but becoming a crafts-person requires a little support.

In this retreat you will learn what is and isn’t working in your writing and why.

Jennifer has written and published four memoirs, and in this retreat, she will give you the all the insight she has learned over 18 years of craft.

In this retreat you will:

  1. Share your writing, workshop style
Be coached on your pages
  3. \Watch other writers be coached
  4. Discover the tricks of how to be a reader who thinks like a writer
  5. Learn the foundation stone of memoir writing: scene.
