Most of us have hopes and dreams and sometimes life truely gets in the way. If you have ever dreamed of writing a Novel, or if you have started writing a novel, here is your opportunity for your dreams to come true. Books & Crannies and the Middleburg Country Inn are sponsoring a writer's retreat at the Inn on March 5-6, 2010, in beautiful, historic Middleburg, VA. This Writer's Retreat will be a small, intimate gathering that will give you the opportunity for personal interaction with authors and agents. You will have time to meet with several local published authors and talk with literary agents about your work. You will also find out more about the complexities and challenges of publishing in today's marketplace. It is amazing to think this but you will also be able to have your work read by an established literary agent. You will even gain a bookseller's perspective on what readers want, how to promote your work and more. There is a little bit of space for those who choose not to stay at the Inn, but think of what you could be missing. The price for this experience is only $250 which includes: All accommodations, wine and welcome party Friday evening, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast.
