Butting in with a special announcement!

Are you looking for a great writing retreat? One that is all about craft? And process? And meeting new friends?

Please consider signing up for the
6th Annual Novel Writing Retreat at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

March 19-21
with E Lockhart, Uma Krishnaswami, and Nancy Mercado

This is what it's all about:

The Novel Writing Retreat is limited to 25 serious writers of middle-grade or young adult fiction. Each participant will choose between a critique track or a writing track. Critique track includes informal small critique groups where participants read and critique other members’ work. Critique track participants will receive a one-on-one critique with one of our writing mentors: Uma Krishnaswami or Emily Lockhart. The writing track will give participants the stimulation of lectures, chunks of time to use for writing, and the opportunity to network. All participants are welcome to take part in scheduled sessions with the three presenters. Evenings will include a Q&A session and an open mike session.

For an additional cost, 13 participants from either track can put their first chapters (up to 10 pages) under the editorial microscope and have a critique with this year's guest editor, Nancy Mercado of Roaring Brook Press. We fill these critique slots by the order we receive applications. Please don’t hesitate if you’re interested.

The fee includes accommodations (double occupancy) in the dorms at Vermont College for Friday and Saturday nights. Meals from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch will be prepared by the New England Culinary Institute. It is always a WONDERFUL, INSPIRING event!
