Happy women at a gathering


Retreats are an uncertain thing in this Corona time...

It's unclear what the future holds for the 2021 "In the Company of Writers" retreat...

But please know that the WRW Board greatly values the retreat - for the knowledge gained through workshops and speakers, for the opportunities to pitch our books to editors and agents, and particularly for the friendships and networks that the retreat enables. We are not giving up on the idea of a retreat, and we're working on an evolution that will help everyone stay safe while also re-invigorating your romance novel journey. Please pardon our pause while we work on it.
