Here is what some of last year’s attendees had to say:

“Before attending the New England Christian Writers Retreat I could not have imagined a place where award winning authors would selflessly offer their expertise and encouragement to empower beginning writers like me.  This retreat is a haven where you can feel safe to explore the dreams God has placed on your heart.   It was a life changing weekend and I can’t wait to go back.”

– Jane Rattray (Massachusetts), blogger “Cherished Child”

 “The New England Christian Writers Retreat gave me the dedicated time and space I desperately needed to focus on my current manuscript, in a truly supportive environment. The presenters were inspiring, the surroundings gorgeous, and the meals delicious–an added bonus for this stay-at-home mom and writer! I can’t wait to return in 2014.

– Susan Gilbert-Collins (New York), author “Starting from Scratch”

 “The New England Christian Writers Retreat far exceeded my expectations.  Offering outstanding workshops, instruction and encouragement from the amazing faculty and networking opportunities with other New England authors, writers and speakers, it was a delight!  (And I won a doorprize – full scholarship to another Writers Conference.)”

– Cindy Saab (Massachusetts), Writer, Speaker, Teacher

 “The New England Christian Writers Retreat provided an intimate atmosphere for writers to meet,  inspire, and spur  one another on towards their God-given writing dreams. Nestled deep inside the New Hampshire mountains, the relaxed atmosphere allowed time for writing and meditation. The leader/teachers, while well accomplished professional writers, exuded a spirit of humility and opened their hearts and schedules to meet with attendees and address our questions on a personal level.”

– Dawn Aldrich (Connecticut), author “Auntie’s House”

 “Writing in New England can be a solitary venture. I am thankful for The New England Christian Writers Retreat which helped me connect with my writing peers in my region and some from the national writers organization (ACFW) that I belong to. The program and teaching was fabulous. I was encouraged, inspired, and blessed!”

– Carla Gade (Maine), author “Pattern for Romance”
