Writers Retreat MO-SCBWI March 2011

Writers at the 2011
MoSCBWIWriters Retreat
We gathered at the Trout Lodge -Y outside Ptosi, MO and revised our writings.  Talked, dined, wrote more. Intermingled, we received critques masterfully crafted and presented by Jennifer Mattson, agent with the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.  She gave the most insightful and detailed critiques of any I've received and for that, "Thank you!"  My crit partner and I have been writing and revising each week since that excellent weekend.

Front row left, me - the new RA; next to me is Stephanie Bearce, immediate past RA and behind Stephanie on the very back row, is Sue Bradford-Edwards, RAE- great mentors.  Front row center is Lynn Rubright, inspirational coach who stimulated much creativity through her storytelling that weekend.  She is amazing - a great person, writer, coach.

Sounds as if you had a very profitable retreat! I envy you . . . maybe next time I'll be able to join you. I hope so.

I would like to see more writing retreats (or simply a good place in Eastern Missouri area for an individual writer to work and be refreshed away from the day-to-day writing environment of home or work).

Do rooms at Trout Lodge have adequate space for writing materials, books and papers?
