Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning I was with 50 people who have enough interest in the craft of writing to spend a weekend together sharing, learning, and exploring. This was the fourth time Barclay Press has done one of these retreats. I didn’t have a “if we build it, they will come” vision when we first considered the emerging writers project, but it’s happened. People who have no previous connection with each other, in a short time feel connected because of their interest in writing. It’s a rich experience to see people encouraged and feeling better equipped to put words on paper for the benefit of others (and themselves).
