Edisto Beach Writers' Retreat - April 26-29, 2018
Our retreat is informal, friendly and supportive. We usually limit to about 8 people of various writing backgrounds - some beginners, others more experienced - so it's a good mix. We meet twice a day to talk about writing and self-editing techniques, and to get helpful feedback from the group. We’ll cover fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, and self-editing.
I’ve (Karen Ackerson) been leading the retreat for 15 years – click here to learn more about me and my work with TWWOA. Please bring notebooks or laptop/printer. You can bring your writing or at least a story idea. On Thursday late afternoon we’ll meet as a group and discuss what people want to get out of the retreat and how to get started - or continue their work. We’ll continue the conversation over dinner.
On Fri- Sat., we will meet twice a day (am and pm) to go over our work and receive helpful evaluation from the group. On Sunday we will convene over (or after) breakfast for a final meeting. There is also plenty of time to relax, go to the beach or for walks, etc. There will be six sessions in all.
We’ve rented a spacious house near the beach. The all-inclusive rate (except for meals) is $495 for a private room, or $395 shared. The commuter rate is $55 per day. Please register no later than Feb. 28, 2018 – either by sending a deposit of $200 to our address, or by using the PayPal buttons below. We are unable to refund payments for special events such as retreats.
