Writer's Retreat Immersion

This program is designed for the native English speaker and writer only. Any applicants from Mainland China will be moved to Upper English Immersion and be charged accordingly.
It is the place for the girl eager to work on an existing piece or turn an idea to print. We welcome writers interested in deepening their practice and craft through free-writing, workshopping, editing, redrafting, and presenting. Poets, essayists, novelists, short story writers, bloggers, journalists, and fan-fiction writers are all welcome.
