WordCrafts Press author Gail Kittleson is slated to serve on the faculty of the Writer’s Weekend for Fiction and Memoir Writers, which is scheduled for the weekend of October 5-7, 2018 in Pine, Arizona.

Get inspired and refreshed at this peaceful getaway spot as you learn or sharpen your writing skills. Spend time on your work in progress or start something new. Optional classes will be offered in the mornings—or just write! Friday and Saturday afternoons are for writing or taking refreshing walks. Deer, elk, javalina, and squirrels are regularly spotted in the back yard. Discuss writing around the  dinner table. In the evenings, laugh and join fellow writers in activities to fuel your creativity and sense of community. Let the retreat center hosts, Candy and Jim, pamper you with delicious food and warm conversation. Check out the Writers’ Weekend venue here.
