I want to make sure the readers of ChristiansRead know about the Novel Retreat scheduled annually in October. During this warm Summer weather is a good time to think about the Blue Ridge “Autumn in the Mountains” Novelist Retreat held at Ridgecrest NC October 19-22.
Reminder of a deadline: The $50 tuition discount is available through July 1, 2014
Sad news: You’ve likely heard that Ron Benrey, who was scheduled to be a faculty member along with his wife Janet, died a few weeks ago. He will be missed.
Good news: Alton Gansky, award-winning novelist and director of the Blue Ridge Writers Conference held annually in May is joining our faculty line-up. Great addition!
If you have a novel in progress or an idea for one, whether you’re a beginner or published, we have a great line-up of workshops, not only about every aspect of novel writing but also social media and the changing publishing industry.
Although our focus is on the craft of writing, our faculty includes an agent and two editors who are eager to talk with you about your work. We also offer critiques and contests, including our highest award: the Golden Leaf Award.
Yvonne Lehman, director, over 50 romance & women’s fiction, Lighthouse editor
Lynette Eason, best-selling suspense writer, over 20 books
Ann Tatlock, award-winning novelist, two-time Christy winner, Lighthouse editor
Diana Flegal, Harline Literary Agent, workshop leader
Edie Melson, novelist, social media expert
Alton Gansky, novelist, director of Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference
