Itinerary

Zoom Workshop
Crafting an Author Mission Statement

Who are you? Better yet, who do you want to be? 


In this pre-Master Class Zoom workshop, we will take a page out of the corporate playbook to create an Author Mission Statement that reflects your brand and your goals. We'll also discuss the importance of revisiting that statement on a regular basis to guard against stagnation and wasted efforts. 


Tuesday, September 10th, 7:00 p.m. (central) 

This is a private event for Master Class attendees only. You will be provided with a Zoom link after registration.

The whole retreat was marvelous. The atmosphere S&J created for the group and the house fostered trust and coziness, facilitated fast relationship-building, and fed body, soul and dreams. The food was STELLAR. Bed was comfy. We were a tech-heavy group and we were all able to plug in or charge devices as needed without a crazy extension cord sitch. A few sadnesses were venue-related, including a non-working light/fan in the great room; no half-bath or "public" toilet on the first floor (all first floor facilities are inside private rooms); and a LOT of leaks (including some water-near-outlet concerns and an attendee who woke in a puddle of a bed) as the lengthy and WET thunderstorm hung out for over 24 hours. I look forward to the next S&J Writer Retreat and plan to attend. I would return to this venue if the light/fan and leaks were fixed... with hopes that private-room peeps will share their bathroom with the rest of the group.

Thank you, Twyla Beth! We're so glad you were able to join us and hope to see you again at future retreats--at a new venue. ;-) -S&J

This retreat was an amazing time to network with like-minded authors and learn from a diverse group of people in the publishing industry. I loved meeting others who ranged from first-time writers to well-established authors who have published several books. There were sessions they taught over burnout, scheduling, author Q&A, and more. The sessions were very helpful and I learned a lot! The food was 100/10 amazing, and the location was great! 10/10 recommend going to this retreat!
