We had a dozen talented women attend ICAN's 2019 Write On Writer's Retreat.

There was time to write, schmooze, set goals for the year (and for the day), brainstorm our projects, and discuss the publishing industry, fiction writing, non-fiction writing, writing Bible studies.

Thanks especially to attendees ​for ideas on how to provide more opportunities to mentor and encourage writers to get the words from their hearts to their heads to the books yet to be written.

Authors inspiring and leading others to achieve their life goals.
