About the retreat:
Robin Mclean has run exceptional craft workshops at the BWW, inspiring 20 writers to try their luck in the lottery for her 2017 prose retreat in Grand Isle; her teaching was "fabulous," "stimulating," "exciting" - and that's why we invited her back for 2018 in the same glorious, peaceful setting.
Here's some specific feedback:

And this from our fearless leader:
"It was a gorgeous day in all ways. Thanks to BWW for making opportunities like this retreat possible. It's rare for adults to get to really get to know other adults, to make new friends, to see into each others' wild minds, vulnerabilities and beautiful insides. It's one of the best things about the risks of writing and art. I'm so grateful I was invited. "
