Retreat to the Springs has now become Into the Springs Writers Workshop!

The former “Retreat to the Springs” is under new management, but will continue to offer an intensive, personal workshop for aspiring writers in the wonderful setting of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Now called “Into the Springs Writers Workshop” and led by Sandra J. Kachurek, with the able assistance of TR Collins, the workshop provides an opportunity to work with published authors in a variety of genres.

Faculty for 2021 are Maddie James (romance) and Dan Stout (noir mystery). The workshop will be held July 30 through August 1 in the John Bryan Community Center in Yellow Springs. Click here for more information and registration.

Well, the reviews are in and they’re great!

OK, I’ve actually had them for weeks, but I just remembered that I have to send them to Communiversity at UC. In April, I taught a one-day workshop called “Writing to Publish.” We had a great class, with lots of good questions about writing, formatting, and publishing your work.

Here are some of the highlights from the evaluations:

“You learn from a person who actually practices. Thank you. Loved it!”

“I learned exercises to help me unlock my writing blocks.”

“Fantastic! I truly learned so much about the writing market. [Would recommend this class to others] absolutely — so informative and so constructive. Very thorough, I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Your next opportunity to hear my instruction on writing and publishing will be at my Capon Springs Nonfiction Writers’ Retreat. Even if fiction’s your thing, you’ll benefit from the beautiful surroundings and the instruction from Ann Hagedorn and me.

Registration deadline is August 15. Make your $50 deposit through PayPal to reserve your place.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Write On! Workshop Cincy Style yesterday. Judging from the evaluations, and speaking for Val and me, a great time was had by all! And didn’t Colleen Zuber at the Refuge Coffee Bar serve us a great lunch? Steve Gillen’s presentation on Copyrights and Contracts (and all the extra tips he gave us!) is surely going to save many of us a lot of headaches.

For yesterday’s participants: did you feel as if your head was spinning and you couldn’t write fast enough? For those who couldn’t make it: are you kicking yourself now? Never fear! Sign up now for the Write On! Workshop that we’re holding in Dayton on March 31, 2012. See you there!
