Squam Lake Writing Retreat

A weekend spent in the company of other writers is enlightening.

A weekend in a serene setting with a lake and a challenging hike to beautiful views is also lovely.

When you are able to combine these two into the same weekend, you’ve really done something special. It’s thrilling to have casual time with other authors, agents, and an editor. The casual environment and well crafted sessions combined everything I look for in a writing event. Hearing my words read so beautifully by someone else for professional critique and the positive response to my first page renewed my focus on writing and revising.

Thanks to Melissa and Jilly for their excellent coordination of the weekend.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
