Falling Leaves Master Class Retreat - Novels - November 15-17, 2013
It's time again to send your application in for our 2013 Falling Leaves Master Class Retreat! Our theme this year is NOVELS! And we will again be at the beautiful Silver Bay on Lake George in New York.
We are hosting five terrific editors, including Kathy Dawson (Kathy Dawson Books), Michelle Poploff (Delecorte), Katherine Jacobs (Roaring Brook), Mallory Kass (Scholastic), and another TBA. Our retreat is small, allowing for a maximum of 35 attendees and 5 editors. And participation is contingent upon application and writing sample.
If you write longer works of fiction, this is the retreat for you!
