Camp Michigamme Writing Retreat – June 10-12, 2011
04/01/2011 by Victor
Do you love to write? Take a weekend to hone your craft, connect with other writers, and get inspired at a beautiful location—Camp Michigamme, located about forty-five minutes west of Marquette, MI. While it is primarily a summer camp for youth programs, Michigamme also provides camping experiences and weekend retreats for adults.
At the June 10 – 12 writing retreat, participants will have the opportunity to make connections and gain insight into different aspects of writing from speakers, activities, and other participants. We will focus on how to share your faith and touch lives through your writing. Open to adult writers of all levels and genres. Cost to attend the weekend is $105. Registration deadline is June 1st.
Meals will be provided for us by the camp staff, and we will have the chance to relive those childhood camp experiences by bunking in cabins with other writers. We will delve into God’s word and how it relates to our own written words with devotions from the book Write His Answer
by Marlene Bagnull. We will also hear from experts on various aspects of writing. Scheduled presenters include Donna Winters (author of the Great Lakes Romances
® Series), who will be sharing her experiences with both traditional and self publishing and Tyler Tichelaar
(founder of Marquette Fiction and author of The Marquette Trilogy
), a specialist in regional fiction writing.
