Annual Retreat Roundup

Our annual retreat is now over, and our members had a wonderful time! Lots of writing accomplished, with Trista Michaels taking the award for most written with over 18,000 words! It’s a great way to start a new year.

Many thanks to all those who attended and helped make the retreat special. And also, we’d like to thank Cabins USA for their great service. The cabin was lovely, with all the amenities we could’ve asked for, responsive service, and a nice quiet place where we could write.

Our January meeting is next Saturday at the Ftn. City Branch Library. We start at 10:00 a.m. The program will be a judging workshop.
