Register now for Weekend on the Water

It's that time of year, when you think ahead to the fall. That said, our annual Weekend on the Water writing retreat is now open for registration. Deadline for submissions to be received is August 30. We'll be in a new venue, with fabulous faculty, and we hope to see you there!

Join a bevy of fellow writers November 7–9, 2014, at the Dumas Retreat Centre in Federal Way. You will hone your craft under the expert tutelage of Andrew Karre, editorial director at Carolrhoda Books, and literary agent Sara Crowe of Harvey Klinger, Inc.

The theme of this year’s retreat: Know Thyself: Crafting a Durable and Personal Identity as a Writer. Through lecture and hands-on workshops, Andrew and Sara will convey how important and helpful it can be for a writer to know what his or her work is about—independent of trends or the broader market—and how this knowledge can help an individual manuscript and a writer’s long-term success.

At the retreat you will have:
Kindred souls. An inspirational setting. Time to write and learn.   
You will not have:
Dirty dishes to deal with. Meals to prepare. A dog that needs to pee at 6 AM.
Weekend on the Water also includes:
  • Two nights’ lodging in a private room with writing desk at the Dumas Bay Centre in a spectacular natural setting.
  • Six catered meals.
  • Free time for writing, walks, resting, and networking.
Participation is selective and requires an application. Acceptance will be based on a blind screening of a brief application and manuscript sample.
