     Fun and stimulating. Steve claims to be a schedule Nazi but I never felt pushed or curtailed due to scheduling issues. We did a few exercises--grab a hat out of a bag of hats, then stand in front of a mirror and write about the character under the hat; go outside and describe something you find, then bring the description back to the group. I enjoyed every bit of the weekend and this group has renewed my writing vigor. I got more than I thought I would. Some great hints; do timed writing exercises; retreat away from everyday life for a jet start.

     Everyone is caring and supportive......a great way to focus and kick-start any level of writing.

     This was my first retreat with the group. Because I enjoyed it so much, I would love for there to be more than two opportunities in a year to meet-up. I would also like for this group to explore additional venues that would accommodate larger groups of writers at a single event. There are state parks, bed & breakfasts, resorts and retreat centers all over Ohio and even surrounding states where we might accomplish this. Malabar Farms Youth Hostel would be my first choice. The hostel manager there is a playwright. I would also like to see more members of the group share in the responsibility of facilitating retreat activities.

     Looking forward to the 2nd annual Ohio Writers Retreat for more fun, fellowship, and good conversation with like-minded friends.
