A writer’s passion to grow their skills in the writing craft can bring them increased success, but getting that training on a writer’s budget can be a challenge.
One of my favorite retreats every year is the Great Lakes Get Away in Duluth Minnesota. The retreat created by Minnesota N.I.C.E., a local chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers, offers a reasonable choice for writers looking to season their craft.
In previous years I was priviledged to learn from a variety of speakers: Rachel Hauck, Colleen Coble, and Susan May Warren. Each retreat made me a stronger writer and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
