Has the 2022 Retreat been postponed?

Yes, the 2022 Retreat has been postponed until 2023. These pages are left intact as a template for next year's organizers. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Is the retreat virtual this year?

Yes! Last year's retreat was such a success that we're keeping this year's an all-digital event, too. That lets members and friends from across the country (and even around the world) attend the sessions and workshops that will empower their writing career.

The registration cost is lower than last year. What's up with that?

By the time we needed to set our prices, we still weren't sure if we could get editors and agents--which means the opportunities of American Author, pitches, and the popular Editors & Agents Q&A are still uncertain. Because we can't promise you that all of the great WRW traditions will be upheld this year, we opted to lower the cost to register, rather than disappoint you. Yes, the price is fire-sale low--so bring a friend or two!

Can I apply for a scholarship to cover my retreat registration fee?

Yes. The chapter has funds set aside specifically to provide retreat scholarships. Please contact chapter president Sabrina Lemieux at president@washingtonromancewriters.com for information.

I'd like to teach a workshop or master class at the retreat. Who should I talk to about that?

How exciting--thank you! The schedule and speakers are set for 2022, but we'd like to hold on to your great idea for consideration in 2023. Please contact chapter Program Director Nate Hoffelder at programs@washingtonromancewriters.com
