Retreat guests tell me the Writer's High Retreat is "magical," and they leave feeling energized in a way they’ve never experienced before—the writer’s high. It’s true—there’s this powerful alchemy that occurs when writers come together in a gorgeous, peaceful setting and are given the time, inspiration, and support they need to breathe life into their writing.
It's our sponsors who sustain this magic––this new life. Writers, if you're looking for a writing community that supports, energizes, and nurtures you, let me introduce you to Broadleaf Writers Association and its visionary founder, Zachary Steele.
Fascinating writers with intriguing life stories--they're the heart and soul of The Writer's High Retreat family. Join us and experience the writer's high® for yourself. Here's Jeff Shaw to share his story:
I'm Jeff Shaw. I had a great career in law enforcement, one that somehow gave me an interest in creative writing. I love reading and writing in many different genres. I’m a hobbyist first, but like many people, I write wanting my work to be read and for people to enjoy what I write or to get something from it.
My first attempt at a sci-fi novel ended in disaster, and I put it away for a year until a friend recommended I spend a weekend at the Writer’s High Retreat. That experience, and the encouragement I got from Mari Ann and all those that attended, was exactly what I needed to dust off my manuscript and make those hard changes it needed.
I’m retired now, but I feel I’m busier than ever: reading, writing, and living.
See you there!
