The retreat was held in Plainfield, NH and our surroundings were gorgeous.
Beautiful Sunday morning Sunrise!
Through sessions, workshops, and critiques, I received plenty of inspiration and helpful information from the amazing faculty.

One of my favorite authors, Tessa Afshar. I was honored to have her critique my first five pages. She gave me some very helpful input.
I had the pleasure of riding up to Plainfield with this amazing woman and author, Carla Olson Gade. I'm reading her book, Patter for Romance, a very enjoyable historical set in colonial Boston.
My roommate, Rachel Britton, me, and Carla at breakfast. Rachel writes nonfiction (Prayer Zone Workout) and is from England. I loved her accent and her sweet heart.
Along with plenty of learning, writing time, hiking, and great food, I met so many beautiful people alive with the spirit of Christ. Looking forward to next year!
Have you ever gone a retreat (of any kind!)? What was your experience? Were you inspired from your time away?
