The Writer's Diagnostics

A Blackbird Intensive Summer Retreat 

Talk through your writing project beginning to end

Decide on your genre

Narrow down your themes

Fit your project into structure chart

Play with various POV options

Outline your refined project 

Leave with a writing goal and plan to get a draft completed

 This is a seven point plan retreat that is focused   on you and your writing project. 

 Jennifer and Cloie will   work with ten writers   ready to focus deeply   on their project.

As a team, we will work together to discuss, shape, and finally plan your entire project.

Our goal in these four days will be to find the heart  of what you are writing, or that defining moment when "everything changes" and build out from there (also known as the climax).

Don't go it alone. Don't spin in circles for another year either. Get that project organized and then, get it done.

$475.00 unless you pay by check, then the cost is $450.00.
