June: Write-by-the-Lake Writer’s Workshop & Retreat

A great spa for your writing, with sections for all levels. I typically lead a Master Class for those with completed novel manuscripts. New sections include short stories and memoirs.

2017 Dates: April 12-15, 2018
This year I’ll be at the conference offering a hands-on workshop with limited enrollment.
I’m also part of an exciting new Writers’ Institute venture called PATHWAY TO PUBLICATION for anyone wanting to fast-track their writing in 2018 with the help of an experienced UW coach (like me!).
