Writers: Looking For Destination Learning?

C.S.Lakin just announced the following learning opportunities at beautiful Lake Tahoe:

Two Tahoe Retreats!

September 14-18 and October 19-23 ~
There are still spaces available!

I’m adding on another intimate writers’ retreat at beautiful South Lake Tahoe, CA!

Here’s what’s exciting! Prolific fantasy author and terrific editor Rachel Starr Thomson will be guest teaching with me at the September retreat.

There are still 3 rooms left, so if you’re interested in dates, let me know ASAP. The house is reserved, and we have a great program of instruction for you, and, if you talk to anyone who went last year, you’ll hear how spoiled they were!

And at our October retreat, award-winning author Ginny Yttrup will be helping teach. She is an amazing author and great at coaching and critiquing. You all are in for a real treat to have her join us!

We haven’t locked in the house yet for that, but once we get at least five rooms booked, we’ll be set.

If you just want to come and write and not attend the sessions, you can do that!

Here’s the info once more:

“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.

This is the best time of year, as it’s after the crazy tourist season and the weather is still wonderful for outdoor activities.

Hope to see you there!
