Stuck frozen in your chair all winter?

Stumbling over plot holes and

Shoveling through character descriptions?

Never Fear! The First 


Spring “Break Out” Retreat


Writers and Illustrators

Is Here!

Enjoy lots of time for writing or illustrating, along with opportunities to workshop, brainstorm, and network with other writers and illustrators. Your scenic cabin is the perfect place to write and illustrate to your heart's content, or attend workshops with published authors and a Skype presentation with Ada Zhang, Editorial Assistant at Sterling Publishing.

A written manuscript excerpt critique by a local, published author is included. You can also select a special package to have your work reviewed by Ada Zhang.

Friday dinner, Saturday Breakfast and Lunch, and Sunday Breakfast at Raven's Perch Restaurant at the Lodge are all included. Saturday, enjoy dinner on your own at the Lodge, or carpool with us to Turkey Red in downtown Palmer. Then enjoy fireside s'mores with your fellow retreat goers!

Bring your works in progress, some comfy shoes, tasty snacks, and your writing, illustrating, and publishing goals. 

But most importantly…

Defrost your fingers and get time to WRITE and ILLUSTRATE!

This is a truly BOUTIQUE Retreat; Max 20 Attendees

PLUS: Limited number of critiques available 
with Editor Ada Zhang
