Our first modest writers' retreat is planned for August 25, a Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, at the 1890s Retreat House in Fort Valley, two doors down from the post office. The cost is $30 per person, and lunch will be served. One guest will be Charlotte Moore, author of numerous mysteries available on Amazon, and other published writers may attend. Part of the day will be spent on writing, thus the title, Writers' Retreat. Stay connected with this page and/or with our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/writerspursuit/ to learn more. Email Anna Holloway at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to reserve and pay for a place at the retreat.
I am the organizer and contact person for the Fort Valley Writers Group at St. Luke's. We meet at 7 pm 1st Tuesdays at St. Luke's across from the university in Fort Valley and 4th Tuesdays at Panera in Warner Robins.
The History of the Fort Valley Writers' Group at St. Luke's
Our group, formerly the Fort Valley Writers Meetup@St. Luke's, has been in existence since May 2016. Our members come from Fort Valley, Byron, Warner Robins, Macon, and elsewhere. We all are serious about writing, whether it be fantasy, science fiction, novels, memoirs, poetry, blogs, or other genres. We have discussed agents, query letters, publishers, conferences, and self publishing as well as writing techniques. Recently, we have concentrated on bringing work to the group to be critiqued, on 1st Mondays, and sitting to write on 3rd Tuesdays. Our members include old and young and are diverse in other ways.
If you have a question or a comment, comment below, and I will respond on behalf of the group.
