Writer's Workshop FALL 2012 WRITING RETREAT

FALL 2012 WRITING RETREAT - presented by the Writer's Workshop

Do you have a story you're burning to write, but never have time to get it done? If so, this is the course for you. This intensive weekend seminar, taught by one of Seattle's master teachers, will help you complete a personal essay or story from start to finish.

You will utilize writing practice techniques to generate an entire rough draft of your story in several hours. By the end of the weekend you will have your piece finished and the polishing process well in hand.

You will learn craft techniques—from first person point of view to captivating leads—that would otherwise require weeks of coursework to assimilate.

You will learn secrets of how to prepare the piece for the market and how and where to send it.

The Friday evening (Sept. 7) session will include dinner, a wine tasting, and an introduction to the course (7 to 9:30 p.m.) at the inspiring Icicle Creek Center for the Arts outside Leavenworth. The Saturday (9 to 4) and Sunday (9 to noon) sessions also will be held at the recital hall, a peaceful, beautiful place designed to enhance our creative work together.

The course fee will be $400 per person double occupancy or $375 triple occupancy, $475 single occupancy. The fee includes two nights lodging, four meals, expert writing instruction and an evening reading and slide show of Nicholas O'Connell's The Storms of Denali.

To enroll:

Please send Nicholas O'Connell a check at 201 Newell St., Seattle, WA 98109. The course is limited to 15 participants and will likely fill quickly.
