)-- Prolific author Gunilla Norris will be the featured guest speaker on July 28th at the annual Creating A Writing Life Retreat for Emerging Writers. Celebrating its 12th summer season of empowering writers, the program is presented each year by award winning freelance writer, Patricia Ann Chaffee and features experts in the field of literary arts.
Norris is the author of eleven children's novels, two books of poetry and nine books on the spirituality of the everyday including, Embracing the Seasons and Companions on the Way. She has been a psychotherapist in private practice for more than 40 years and has had the privilege of accompanying many people on their journeys to growth and healing.
These retreats are for emerging writers and anyone who needs a bit of inspiration and encouragement as a writer,” said Chaffee. “So we attract new writers and seasoned writers who want to spend a day celebrating the writing life, sharing stories, learning from an extraordinary guest speaker, and honoring their creative path in a spectacular location.”
This year the event takes place on Ender’s Island in Mystic. “It is an idyllic setting for inspiring creativity and was actually the location of the very first Creating A Writing Life retreat, 12 years ago,” said Chaffee. The retreats present an opportunity for writers to honor their passion for the craft, network with other writers and celebrate the writing life in a relaxed, judgement free, affirming atmosphere.
The all-inclusive event Saturday, July 28th, runs 9:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. and includes a continental breakfast and buffet lunch. Registration is $155 per person with a $5 discount for registration prior to July 1.
