Writer’s retreat at the beach.

untitled

If you teach English you probably have a story in you that has yet to find its way onto the page–you’re just too busy to write it down.

Every January I lead a pair of women’s writing retreats on beautiful St. George Island, Florida. There are daily workshops, time to work on individual projects, and I critique pages all day long.

The gathered writers share their work, encourage and support each other and the food is, well, writers have been known to gain weight while on retreat at “Fiction Among Friends.” We have nothing against male writers, they are some of our favorites–but by limiting enrollment to women we feel relaxed enough to do things like handstands on the beach.

Perky Granger and Gina Edwards are the organizers of the gatherings, and they will make you feel right at home.

If your writing needs a time and place to grow, I hope you’ll take a look!
