Annual Retreat

The WFWA Retreat is a craft and networking event. It’s an opportunity to talk about women’s fiction – both the writing and marketing aspects – with like-minded writers in a relaxed atmosphere.

Members can watch guiding Scribe Heather Webb's keynote speech at this year's awards banquet here.

The 2018 retreat will focus on the art of revision, with book coach, author, and creative strategist Jennie Nash. Ms. Nash will be teaching a revision process that will help writers at every stage in their career hone their self-editing skills and learn how to give their manuscripts that extra boost. There will be in-person lessons, plenty of time to execute the revision exercises, and a live review of a handful of participants' before-and-after revisions for an inside peek into how an editor thinks.

There will also be discussion groups on topics chosen by retreat attendees. These informal discussions are facilitated by retreat attendees and are an opportunity for everyone to share experiences, questions, concerns, and ideas. Click here for more information.
