Workshop Presenter
Registration Fee


We’re excited to have Tiffany Yates Martin, editor and author of Intuitive Editing, as the workshop presenter in 2021.

Over the three days of the retreat, attendees will split their time between workshop sessions with Tiffany, writing, connecting with other women’s fiction authors, and recharging their creative wells.

During the workshop sessions, Tiffany will be leading attendees in a deep-dive into creating layered, believable, engaging people within your stories, and imbuing them with strong, clear drives, motivations, and goals. We’ll break down why your plot has to be rooted in your characters and their arcs, and how to use that to create a tight, compelling story that maintains momentum to keep readers hooked. 

Detailed schedule to come.
