Attention, writers! Here’s an invitation for you.

This just in from Laity Lodge…

Dear friends,
The 2nd Annual Writers’ Retreat at Laity Lodge is fast approaching (September 29 – October 2). The end of September is a perfect time to be at the Lodge with fellow writers and an incredible cast of experienced teachers. For those of you who have not yet registered, we encourage you to do so here. If you have registered, please follow this link and indicate which workshop you would like to attend.
The retreat will feature a combination of plenary talks, as well as an intensive 2-day writing workshop. Whether you’re already a professional writer or simply want to strengthen your skills, there is place for you at the table. There will also be plenty of opportunity to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Frio River Canyon and all that Laity Lodge has to offer.
