Presenting at the Creative Weekend in Pokagon State Park

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 on October 5-7, 2018.

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.
