What happens when a Write-by-the-Lake Retreat Master Class ends but the writers keep meeting? They get published, among other achievements. Our group of seven women decided to meet annually for a reunion, sharing and critiquing each other’s pages. We call ourselves “The Writing Sisters” and despite our differences in genres, locations and lifestyles, draw strength and power from our continued friendships. We just finished our third reunion in August. Find out what we do and how we keep in contact and what’s happened with our writing. We hope to inspire you to create a writing group that will fuel your passion and help you reach your writing goals.
