Writing Retreat for Jewish Kidlit Authors! 2019

September 5 - 8, 2019


The Fall Jewish Writer’s Retreat will be a mostly unstructured four-day writing retreat for Jewish Children’s Literature writers. The weekend will provide an inclusive space for Jewish writers working on middle grade, young adult, and picture books to dig into a work in progress surrounded by others who are doing the same. Your writing time for the weekend will be your own. We’ll gather together at meals to chat and share.

If you can’t make it in September, a Winter Jewish Writer’s Retreat is scheduled from Sunday, January 19 to Wednesday, January 22, 2020. Please use this link to register for the January retreat.
