Women’s Writing Retreat: Memoir

Coming August 23-26 will be the opportunity for you to bond with other women who want to write their legacy.  We will have the most delicious gourmet meals prepared by a wonderful amazing woman.  We will learn together, write together, share together.  I still have some shared loft space available if you are interested in joining us.  The cost is $550.00 which includes accomodations in Big Bear Lake and all the meals.  Arrive Friday evening by 5 pm and leave Monday around noon.  We will have over 16 hours of workshop time plus private time for you to write.
