Family History Writer Retreat is More Than Just Writing

Family History Writer Retreat is More Than Just Writing

Writing and doing genealogy research are pretty solitary pursuits for the most part. As an introvert, I do well in alone time. But, there is something about spending time with people, the people who get why you do what you do, people who are your tribe. The family history writer’s retreat is geared to provide you with lots and lots  of quiet, writing time in a beautiful locale. After all that focused energy during the day though, you will need to unwind and reset each evening.

After a your busy day of writing, we will serve afternoon tea and fresh baked scones, (herbal teas will also be available), as well as hot cocoa and homemade marshmallows to drink around the fire. Delicious breakfasts and lunches are provided, but for dinner we will explore the local cuisine and eat at Jill’s favorite restaurants, or we can order pizza in.

Evenings will include informal presentations and Q&A from Jill and I on writing and publishing topics that mean the most to attendees, while enjoying desserts, wine and sparking ciders. Opportunity to share your writing with the group is optional. This is an chance for positive feedback and encouragement and not a critique session. First drafts need love, editing comes much later.

Other relaxing evening options are hot tubbing and star gazing – the Milky Way is visible on clear nights, so make sure a load your star gazing apps before you come.

Small, relaxed groups, fresh mountain air, great food, and productive writing time…sounds heavenly right? Come join Jill Morelli and I, and join the tribe.
