This day of learning, writing and creativity is suitable for all genres. The class will be held Friday, July 24, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Class sessions will take place in the house, but participants are free to spend breaks and writing sessions in Bev’s beautiful garden.
Location: 6584 Parkville Circle, Baxter, MN 56425 Writer and artist, Bev Abear, has offered her home and gardens for this unique writing retreat and class.
Our day together will be productive, but casual and fun! The morning sessions will include instruction on what a writer needs to look for during the revision process, followed by a writing assignment (in the garden or inside Bev’s home). The afternoon sessions will include an opportunity to have your work edited. If you are interested in an edit of your work during this session, please forward two pages of a work in progress to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that copies of your work may be distributed among the workshop participants. If you would like to remain anonymous, please make sure your name is not present on the pages. Please forward your pages to me before July 18, 2015. Pages can consist of your first pages of a novel or memoir, a poem, short story, or magazine article.
Cost for the entire day is $50 and includes snacks, coffee, iced-tea and water. Bring a bag lunch and paper and pen (or laptop). Space is limited, so please reserve your spot soon. Mail your $50 check, along with your name, address, phone number and email (if available) to: Angela Foster, 30036 St. Croix Road, Pine City, MN 55063
