“How to write your autobiography or family history, one story at a time.”
Nestled in the beautiful wide-open spaces of the Texas Hill Country, this new writing retreat at Mo-Ranch offers writing sessions in the morning and afternoon, group discussions, creative writing fuel, worship and recreation.
Writing workshops will build your confidence as you transform memories into short narratives and share your stories with others. The retreat leader, Justin Rogers, will share tips for starting your own story-sharing group and finding your own writing topics.
Register now, space is limited! Last year’s retreat sold out.
Justin Rogers is currently a graduate instructor at Texas A&M University where he is pursuing his doctorate degree in 19th century British and Irish literature. He is a published author and has led memoir writing classes with the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Hunt, Texas.
All participants will be housed in Wynne/Flato hotel rooms.
