2018 MCRW Member Retreat

On February 2-4, 2018, MCRW members are invited to attend our annual member retreat at Mongomery Bell State Park. Retreats are a casual but massively informative weekend full of food, learning, writing, fresh air (at least a little), and fellowship.

This year our featured speaker is none other than Virginia Kantra, NYT bestselling author, two-time RITA winner and ten-time RITA nominee. After a welcome party and motivational activity on Friday night, Ms. Kantra will present two masterclasses on Saturday: deep point of view and body language. 

Registration for the retreat is $25 and any money you choose to spend on food at the Forge Restaurant on the inn premises. MCRW isn't providing meals and we aren't trying to organize a group potluck. This will hopefully simplify things for everyone and cut way down on cleanup!

Deadline to register for the retreat itself is January 14, 2018, and lodging can be booked up until December 18 with the MCRW room block, but don't wait until the last minute! The rooms and villas may go quickly.

If you wish to spend Friday and/or Saturday night at the inn or in one of the cabins, there are added costs there, but you are welcome to drive over to the the park for just the day. We would love to have as many MCRW members come as possible. The cabins do have full kitchens and lots of room for sharing.

Please hop over to the complete retreat information page on the RWA website -- you'll need to login to your RWA account to make it work smoothly. https://www.rwa.org/p/cm/ld/fid=2427

You will find the registration link there as well. This will sign you up for the retreat itself, and in your confirmation email, you'll receive your password and group code to get a room at Montgomery Bell in the MCRW room block. Room reservations will be made on your own instead of through MCRW.

Hope to see you in February!
