The workshop’s focus will be on fiction and the spiritual journey you, as a writer, undertake to create it through seeking, knocking, and asking.
The publishing world is ever-changing. Learn how to navigate it and benefit from the cumulative experience of our three talented Christian instructors who have successfully published best-selling fiction, non-fiction, screen plays, picture books, and young adult literature. Spend focused and intentional time in the track best suited to you, have the opportunity for one-on-one consultations, and learn from a panel of editors. We have intentionally designed this retreat to provide you with time to reflect, regain perspective, and find revitalized life for your writing – so that those writing doors will open.
You bring the creativity. We’ll build the space for you to make meaningful gains toward your personal and professional goals, all while surrounded by the soul-stirring beauty of Glen Eyrie.
