      ABOUT THE RETREAT 

      Relax, Rejuvenate, and Rewind 

      An opportunity for writers of middle grade and young adult novels to escape the routines and demands of every day life and concentrate on nurturing and empowering their inner writer while reconnecting with their works-in-progress. 

      Retreat. Step into the peace and quiet of the secluded C.O.D. Ranch - where you will be nourished by inspiration, camaraderie, and professional guidance. 

      Learn how to cherish, encourage, and utilize the muse from first draft to polished manuscript. Sessions will focus on revision, character motivation, promise and premise, plotting, dialogue, and personal and project goal-setting. 

      Writers who are interested in this retreat will need to submit the first 5000 words (or the first 20 pages) of a professionally formatted manuscript of a work-in-progress and an addendum including the following: an abbreviated single spaced one paragraph synopsis, a brief summary of prior writing related experiences if applicable (i.e. published titles with publishers names and dates; conferences; workshops; classes; etc.) and a statement of what they hope to gain from this retreat. 

      ABOUT THE SETTING Overlooking the expanse of the Coronado National Forest north of Tucson, Arizona, the Historic COD Ranch is a natural haven to enjoy beautiful views overlooking 6,000 acres of the Galiuro Mountains and unbelievable evening starlit skies.
