Old Saybrook, CT, May 28, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Creating a Writing Life Retreat for Emerging Writers takes place on Saturday June 10th and July 22nd celebrating its 11th season of empowering writers. The programs are presented each year by freelance writer and Old Saybrook resident, Patricia Ann Chaffee and features experts in the field of literary arts.
The June event welcomes romance novelist Jamie Beck and in July the featured writer is poet and publisher Gian Lombardo. This year the retreats are being held at Mercy By the Sea in Madison, a 33 acre, waterfront retreat on Long Island Sound. The retreats present an opportunity for writers to honor their passion for the craft, network with other writers and celebrate the writing life in an inspiring, judgement free, affirming atmosphere.
Chaffee has been presenting these programs based on her own unconventional journey to the writing life, for over a decade. “I call these gatherings “retreats for emerging writers,” but I think we are all emerging in different ways,” says Chaffee. “The writing life is a journey, and we are all in process and working toward a deeper understanding of our gifts and who we are called to be.”
The all-inclusive event runs from 9:30 a.m- 4:30 p.m. and includes a continental breakfast and buffet lunch. Registration is $155 per person.
