More Room to Create 2013 | October 6 – October 11, 2013

A room of your own—in a peaceful and quiet cabin in the autumn woods—in which to write. Woodland paths blazing with fall colors on which to hike. A trickling stream. Delicious meals in The Barn at Boyds Mills and a community of writers around the crackling fire pit at night. Critiques and advice and support and instruction.

All writers need to give themselves time. Time to think. Time to imagine. Time to create. All writers need room. Room in their lives in which to write.

“More Room to Create” is a workshop/retreat led by award-winning authors Linda Oatman High and Sandy Asher. “More Room to Create” gives you the gift of solitude, space, and time, all in a setting sure to inspire. Immerse yourself in your writing with a retreat format that allows you to devote all day long to developing and grooming your work. And in the evening, enjoy the support and guidance of instructors and students. Enjoy camaraderie and inspiration as you receive feedback on your writing, take advantage of individual critiques/conferences, and informally discuss the field of children’s publishing.

Bring a work in progress or start something new! Attend social nighttime events or stay in and write. This is YOUR time and YOUR space. Shape it YOUR way!
