It’s that time of year again when Amy Trueblood and Michelle Hauck host Sun vs Snow! This is not a twitter contest, but a blog contest for unpublished writers. This year they have 21 agents participating (half shown here and the other half shown here). Make sure you get your submission ready via email and submit when the window opens on January 23, 2017 at 4pm EST. They only take the first 200 entries, so don’t wait to long. Get your query and first 250 words polished now!
This is only for completed manuscripts, so please don’t send WIPs. Go here for complete guidelines.
You’ll stay on a working farm in the heart of the rainforest, with easy access to both hammocks and hikes. Each morning, you’ll participate in creative writing workshops, and each afternoon, you’ll have time to write or explore.
The week begins and ends with public readings — which your family is welcome to attend!
Cost: $1,345-$1,819 per person (does not include lunch or dinner); $290 per child (if sharing a room with two adults). The retreat will be February 4-11, 2017. Remember, if you’re an author, retreats are tax deductible. Get complete details here.
