Who wouldn't want to write, relax and learn here???
Have you ever been on a writer's retreat? What was the best thing about it?
Terrible, yes. But also hilarious.ReplyDelete
I want to come sooo bad! Stupid trip home to see the family, why do you have to ruin my writing plans?
Way to reel us in!ReplyDelete
Your retreat is really growing. Imagine where it's going to be in just five years.
And no, I've never been to one.
You Go girl! Having Katherine Sands is HUGE! I've pitched to her twice, she's a fab, savvy agent. Keep us posted on all the details.ReplyDelete
Oh dude, this is awesome. And I'm so envious of all who will be attending!ReplyDelete
Maybe I should add this to my bucket list. ;)
Oh my! Ohhhhh myyyyyyyyyy! Dang, want.ReplyDelete
I haven't been on a writer's retreat but am looking forward to the combination of having the $ and time to attend one :-)ReplyDelete
Sounds like this is going to be great for those who make it :-)
No, I've never been to a writer's retreat, and one with history in its location would be great. Not in my future right now though, sigh.ReplyDelete
You lured me too with that line. . . good hook. Good luck, it will be great, and it sounds like you've got a great start with those two speakers!
That's a huge retreat! Sounds extremely educational, though. And fun, too. :-)ReplyDelete
Hi Jess .. that's brilliant news - and you had such a fabulous time last year .. with lots of fun participants and I'm sure some serious results thereafter ... a writer's retreat in Ithaca would be just up my street - perhaps next year ...ReplyDelete
Good luck with everything - sounds a great opportunity .. cheers Hilary
Okay, so you had me fooled. Sounds like a great retreat! You do just about everything! Amazing.ReplyDelete
HA! Nice opener. ;)ReplyDelete
Glad you're hosting the retreat again--sounds like a great program!
good for you! Homer is still mystical to me. i really should go on one of these writer's retreats before it's too late...i want to, but i'm shy...but i really do need a vacation...ReplyDelete
Sweet! Now if only I was going to Greece this year. Sounds like a great retreat, even though I'm not a retreat type person.ReplyDelete
And very sneaky with the post title. lol
I would love to go on that retreat. You have a great lineup.ReplyDelete
Jessica, I'm sorry I missed your stop in my list. I had it written down, just forgot to include it. I have it listed now.
