Join us for the third annual Writers Retreat at Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts, open to writers of all levels. Enrich your talent and prospects in this charming art community and old mining town. Choose one of three genres taught by either Patricia Ann McNair (Memoir and Personal Essay; Retreat Artistic Director), Christine Rice (Short Story), or Shawn Shiflett (New Novel Pages) for an in-depth workshop that will challenge you across the three days. These workshop leaders are well-published and award-winning, and are active, experienced teachers of writing. Interwoven around these main workshops will be optional and inspiring creative activities; publishing panel discussions; and participant, faculty, and local author readings.
