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!
