Another Great Tahoe Retreat!

This fall, I’m hosting another intimate writers’ retreat at beautiful South Lake Tahoe, CA!

Spots are filling up, so I’m sending this one last blast to give you a chance to join in.

Get inspired, instructed, and refreshed at this top vacation destination as you learn the nuts and bolts of novel structure, work on your ideas and work in progress, get great feedback, ideas, and brainstorming help on your novel—all at one of the most beautiful lake resort areas in the US!

Spend your mornings in intensive instruction, your afternoons writing, your early evenings in discussion, and your nights relaxing—soaking in the hot tub, working on your writing, taking in a show, or enjoying all the South Shore has to offer.

Susanne Lakin’s retreat for writers at Lake Tahoe was the best one I’ve ever attended. I haven’t regretted going for one moment. It was money well-spent.

The 2015 Lake Tahoe writer’s retreat was an incredible experience. Whether you are a beginner, an established writer, a published author, or are looking for a quiet place of magnificent beauty far from the demands and pressures of daily life, you will appreciate all that this retreat has to offer. Everything met and exceeded my expectations; from accommodations, the gourmet meals, expert training and consultation, and the priceless friendships that continue to this day.

—Dawn Mattox, author of The Advocate series

Don’t wait too long! Spaces will fill up.

Hope to see you there!
