The Just Write Writers’ Retreat was held for the first time in 2012. I blogged about it here.
A 2016 post-Retreat release reads in part:
‘The retreat’s organiser, Brenda Lee Browne is very happy: “This is the third Just Write Writers’ Retreat in Antigua and it is growing. It was a packed two days in a great setting and I cannot thank Joanne C. Hillhouse and Chadd Cumberbatch enough for being so generous with their time and sharing their vast knowledge with an eager group of writers.”
Joanne C. Hillhouse adds that: “Artists need space to create; not just physical space but mental space – a retreat like Mount Tabor provides both. It has the potential because of this to attract not only local writers but with proper support and promotion writers from other places. I’m thrilled to have been a part of it over the years and feel myself growing as a facilitator even as those I tutor grow in their strengths as writers.”
The participants attended workshops on ‘Editing’, ‘Poetry Writing and Performance’ and ‘Starting to write’’ READ the full report at Antigua Chronicle (which, sidebar, you may remember has a former Wadadli Pen winner as its editor and publisher)
Congrats to Just Write – writers, co-facilitators, founder Brenda Lee Browne, on another successful year.
