Spring Writers Retreat with Savannah Sipple
Troublesome Creek Writers’ Retreats offer a fun and relaxing weekend on the Hindman Settlement School campus during one of our most beautiful seasons. Facilitated by accomplished writers and authors, these retreats are kept small–between 12-15 participants–so that attendees can write in community, without the demands of a structured workshop, but still with the opportunity to participate in facilitated discussions and sessions. Here is an opportunity to write, read, and fellowship, away from the hustle of everyday life.
The retreat begins on the evening of Friday, April 22 and concludes at your leisure on Sunday, April 24. Registration fee includes lodging in of our on-campus cottages in a private room and meals from Friday evening through Sunday morning. .
