August 2018 Workshops: Nature, Science, Revision, Picture Books & Novels

Sep 5, 2018 | The Highlights Foundation Experience

That’s right–we had seven workshops in August! Our visitors enjoyed amazing speakers, faculty input on their manuscripts, kayaking, s’mores, nature walks and making new friends. Here’s a peek:

Revision Retreat
“Harold and Eileen had so much wisdom and resources to share. Their presentations were informative and engaging. The prompts and other writing and reviewing activities encouraged us to think out of the box and also meet our fellow conference-goers. My idea of my own work radically changed a few times!”
