Get Away and Write!

Get away and write!
Wow! What a busy spring it has been! I've been working hard to complete a writing project (I will reveal it very soon) while balancing what I am calling "Winter Recovery." I don't have to shovel snow anymore, but there is grass to mow and running to do, track meets to attend and front porch tiles to repair, and the patio project. Yes, Winter 2017 was a hard one and it's taking some time to recover. Wouldn't it be nice to get away from it all for a day and just write?

I CAN! I really can, and so can you.

The Idaho Creative Authors Network is hosting a writers' retreat in July at historical Givens Hot Springs in Marsing, Idaho. We're calling it Relax and Refresh Writers' Retreat and we are inviting published and yet to be published writers. Come join us for a day of creativity away from the commotion of your world.
ICAN Executive Board
Sheila Eismann, Carol Green, JoEllen Claypool, Phyllis Vavold Nettleton
The ICAN Executive Board, JoEllen Claypool, Phyllis Vavold Nettleton, Sheila Eismann, and myself will be available all day to assist and consult as needed. This event is designed for writers to make true progress on their current writing project, receive tutoring help from the ICAN Executive Committee, and relax after a day of creating and networking in this peaceful country setting.  Swimming in Givens’ natural warm waters is included in the ticket price along with a barbeque lunch. Wifi is available at the facility.  Writers can end the day feeling accomplished and relaxed!  During the event, the sponsors will feature their books for sale.

Attendees will need to bring their writing project(s), laptops if desired, pens, notebooks, lawn chair, swim suit, and towel.

Family members can join the attendees for swimming at a reduced rate payable at the door to Givens Hot Springs.

I hope to see you there. In the meantime I will be putting the finishing touches on my books (yes, that's plural) for beginning runners and mentoring young runners in a newly formed running club. Yes, there is much to do. Gotta run!
