Are you at a stage in your life in which you're longing for personal feedback on your writing? Then check out HACWN's Spring Mentoring Retreat April 16-18, 2009.
This event is designed for the people who long for a personal touch and coaching from a professional writer/editor that goes beyond what you usually find at a writers' conference. We'll all get away at a retreat center near Kansas City (Excelsior Springs). You'll show your materials to your mentor, the mentor will give you feedback, you'll go work on your project, and bring it back again to show to your mentor. You'll have access to your mentor from Thurs. to Saturday. Each mentor will have 6 to 8 people to coach.
We're excited about our team of mentors. These are people who are passionate about helping writers on a more personal level, such as Nick Harrison from Harvest House, Katura Patton from Tyndale, Eric Reed from Christianity Today and others, Jeanette Windle with Kregel, and Zena Dell who has seen her screenwriting produced.
If you have a writing project that just isn't getting done, this is a great chance to just get away and get that project well underway. It's also a great place to get in-depth career consultation. All for a fraction of the cost to hire a consulting editor for 48 hours! This is an investment that just might bring high returns.
If this fits where you are in your writing right now, I hope you'll take a good look at the flyer and pray about the possibility of coming. If you have questions, feel free to contact Mark at MLittleton@earthlink.net or 816-459-8016. If you do feel drawn to this even, you might register quickly--it's a first-come thing and we already have several registrations. Also, feel free to pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested.
