SAVE THE DATE! MORE DETAILS COMING SOON! Our Focus & Flourish Writers Retreat will be January 24-26, 2025 at the Cavalier Inn in San Simeon--back by popular demand. It's a glorious venue beside the beach with firepits and a lovely view.

This year we're encouraging entire critique groups to come together and work throughout the weekend.
