Calling All Writers!

Okoboji Writers’ Retreat
September 17 – 20, 2023


Join me in West Lake, Okoboji, Iowa for the Okoboji Writers’ Retreat! I’ll be mentoring for the third year in a row, along with an outstanding faculty of authors, poets and journalists.

You’ll have dozens of breakout sessions to choose from, plus panel discussions with plenty of Q&A. One of my mentees from the first Okoboji retreat wrote her book and published it this spring (see Better Not Bitter, below). This could be you!

There are only a few spots left for the retreat, and it’ll be a sell-out for sure. Early bird enrollment ends on September 1.

Middlewick Story Summit

Everyone, including mentors, are attending Middlewick to write. This is a write-cation—a place and time to get away to a beautiful and inspiring place.

Imagine the ideal of writing four hours a day, every day, every week. We are suggesting that writers attend for a two-week minimum, if possible. We realize that may not be the case for everyone. On any given day, we may have few as ten writers at Middlewick or as many as thirty.

We can make the world new every day.
