Fall Writers Retreat with Danni Quintos
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–approximately 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, November 3 and concludes at your leisure on Sunday, November 5th. Registration fee includes lodging in one of our on-campus cottages (double-occupancy) and meals from three meals (dinner on Friday and lunch/dinner on Saturday).
