Are you interested in attending our annual retreat in the Pocono Mountains (April 17-19) but aren’t sure what to expect? Are you on the fence about making the weekend time commitment or the long drive? Do you have questions about the programming or accommodations? Or are you all set to go but want to meet other attendees ahead of time?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, we encourage you to attend one of our free Meet & Greets in the upcoming weeks. We’ll chat about the retreat, our faculty, scholarship opportunities,* our programming, critique opportunities, and the beautiful and hospitable Highlights Foundation where the retreat will take place!
