My Connecticut Writers Group is hosting the forst New England Christian Writers Retreat up here in October. Registration will open soon. Here is the information available so far:

Are you looking for quality instruction that helps you… mature in your craft? Then plan now to join us for the NEW ENGLAND CHRISTIAN WRITERS RETREAT!
A New England-based faculty of 5 successful published authors will offer an eclectic selection of practical workshops targeted to help you write a powerful first page, finish the first chapter of your novel, build a blog, write memoir, craft professional book proposals, and move beyond writer’s block. One distinctive is that there will be plenty of time to actually write!

Enjoy times of worship and inspiration from seasoned speakers familiar with the writing journey. Writers of all levels and genre are welcome, but space is limited for maximum interaction.
