New to writing, or a published or soon-to-be-published author?
As long as you have a serious desire to write, you are welcome to join the Women Writers’ Circle!
Our retreats are designed to offer women the perfect time and place to write, along with encouragement and support from other writers. While we’re primarily concerned with offering the big blocks of time to write that so many women can only dream of, we also want to help other women writers hone their craft, and that’s why we are especially excited to announce that our 2022 special guest author and workshop leader is

She absolutely loves to share her knowledge and insights with other women, and we couldn’t be happier to offer her the opportunity to do so at our Women Writers’ Circle Retreats!
Depending on your retreat, features include either a FIRST PAGE ADVISING SESSION OR EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENTAL REVIEW with Ms. Mitchard. Submit a short excerpt of your work, plus a few of your most burning questions about writing and publishing, then enjoy in person/zoom advising session with the author (Developmental Reviews also include Ms. Mitchard’s written comments and suggestions).
