ICAN is taking a peek into the New Year! We would love for you to join us for this one day retreat where we will kickstart our writing goals 2019 and achieve true progress on our current writing projects. Tutoring help from the ICAN Executive Committee will be available throughout the day as well as some scheduled focus groups for writing fiction, Bible studies, and memoirs. Attendees can choose to form critique groups or stroll the grounds to get the inspiration flowing.

Attendees will need to bring their writing project(s), laptops if desired, pens, notebooks, and a sack lunch. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
