Do you want to get away from it all this fall and CREATE? How about some time to RECHARGE with your creative buddies? Would you like some inspiring craft sessions to MOVE FORWARD?

We hear you!

SCBWI Indiana and Michigan are teaming up to provide a weekend creative retreat in beautiful Pokagon State Park. The Park is located in northeast Indiana near Angola and is just off I-69.

The cozy and comfortable Potawatomi Inn Resort and Conference Center within the Park will be the venue for lodging, retreat events, and meals.

 

 

 

This Retreat is designed for writers and illustrators at every level of experience. It will provide a perfect blend of creative time, craft-related sessions, critiques, and socializing/connecting.

Three or four optional craft sessions will be offered on Saturday and Sunday morning. Afternoons will be left open for creating, paid PAL level critiques, and/or optional peer critique groups for writers and illustrators. Optional social events will be held Friday and Saturday evenings.

Fee: $125 SCBWI members, $150 not yet members.

Your investment includes: lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday, all programming, peer critique groups, and socials. Dinner on Friday night and breakfasts both days are available for purchase in the Potawatomi Inn dining room. (Or if you’d rather stay in your pj’s and nibble your own treats in your room, feel free.)

Paid critiques and portfolio reviews by PAL members will be available for purchase in advance of the Retreat.

Lodging: Our negotiated rate for a double room is $89.00 per night plus 12% IN sales tax. Attendees must register by September 4, 2018. After this date, rooms will be released for general sale. All reservations can be made by calling the Inn’s Central Reservations number (877) 563-4371 or through the Inn’s website www.indianainns.com. Use group code 1005SC. Individuals will be responsible for room and incidental charges. To view rooms, click HERE. Note, no pets allowed.
