Writers who are also women find it hard to put themselves and their goal to complete that novel, memoir, collection of short stories, first. That is why the all-female writing retreat, Fiction Among Friends, gathers at the start of each year on St. George Island.
There are two different sessions, each lasting a week. I teach two workshops a day on the craft of writing, and critique and edit pages of works in progress–writers are free to sit out workshops if they are on a hot streak.
The beauty of the place–“Always Awesome,” the house we rent, is right on the beach, which we seem to have all to ourselves; the home cooking, and most of all the company of other committed writers, makes the week away from the demands of our so-called real lives inspiring, peaceful, and productive.
We still have a slot or two in each of the sessions. To check the retreat out, visit our “Fiction Among Friends” Facebook page.
To reserve a spot contact Perky Granger by Messenger, by email at PersisGranger@aol.com, or by phone: 352-463-3089.
I hope to see you on the island!
