Writing in the Dark is and annual one day writing retreat that takes place on the second Saturday in February from 9 am to 4 pm. It is a wonderful day of focusing on writing techniques and every year we invite an author in a different genre to share their techniques and skills with the interior writing community. Registration happens each year throughout December, January and early February.
