You told us and we heard you.  We get it.  Life is busy!  You can’t always get away for a full weekend, but you don’t want to miss the entire event.

Now you can register for our new Saturday-Only option and still be part of the excitement that is the Pocono Retreat. 

You’ll hear a fantastic keynote and presentation by Patricia Lee Gauch, hone your craft in your choice of 3 Workshops with award-winning authors/illustrators Susan Campbell Bartoletti, Matt Phelan and Katie Davis (choose 1 from each selection A B and C), and even opt to add in a professional critique too.  You can do a lot in just one day!
