Why is the 2023 Retreat in June versus the normal month of April?

The Retreat takes an extensive amount of planning. Several months in fact. Due to uncertainty resulting from the pandemic, we weren't sure an in-person event was possible. Alas, we decided to go for it. As the world slowly returns to pre-pandemic norms, we hope to resume our April timeframe for the retreat.

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 Annison Roy 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! Please contact Margaret Hren at programs@washingtonromancewriters.com to inquire about the retreat schedule.

When is the cut-off date to register for the 2023 Retreat?

The deadline to register is May 26, 2023, at 5:00 pm EDT. Please secure your ticket through Eventbrite before then. We don't want you to miss this opportunity.
