NEW ENGLAND WRITERS RETREAT
The first New England Writers Retreat will be held Oct. 18-20, 2013 at Singing Hills in Plainfield, NH. Workshops, plenary sessions and a panel discussion will be available during the weekend. One highlight of the retreat will be free optional one-on-one editing sessions for up to five pages of writing with the retreat's writer hosts: historical fiction author Tessa Afshar, speaker and nonfiction writer Lucinda Secrest McDowell, and Broadway Critic and Playwright Lauren Yarger. The low $210 fee includes the conference fee as well as lodging and meals (Friday evening through Sunday noon) all during the height of fall foliage in the beautiful hills of New Hampshire. There is an option for staying Thursday night as well and adding an extra day of writing and/or editing sessions on Friday to the package. Authors Carol Barnier and Jeanne Doyon also will join the faculty for the 2013 retreat. For a detailed schedule and to register, visit http://lucindamcdowell.wordpress.com/.
