Award-winning Author Adrian Fogelin

Many of our St. George Island Writers' Retreat participants return every year, always finding in Adrian's teaching new guidance and inspiration.

Here are a few of their remarks.

  • I need time to write away from the hustle and bustle. To be creative is not the only reason I come - as a writer I'm not accomplishing anything if I don't finish and improve what I've written. St. George Island Writers' Retreat gives me room and time and quiet to do both, and I get inspiration and energy from the other writers who come.

  • I think I found a "me" voice that I've never used before - something I don't think I was ready to find five years ago!

  • Adrian is a superb teacher of the writer's craft.

  • Adrian is a wonder. Her insights concerning the problems with my novel, guided me into the rewrite and will carry me through to the end. Thanks, Adrian.

St. George Island Writers' Retreat

From sunup to sundown (and later), women at the St. George Island Writers' Retreat for Women share writing, reading, critique sessions, meals, occasionally a tear and always a lot of laughter. We have celebrated publications, mourned loss. We rejoice in the progress of each member, commiserate about frustrations, and update one another on the writing progress of the past year. The St. George Island Writers' Retreat for women offers a combination of structured and unstructured time, group time and alone time—a flexible schedule that gives each member blocks of time to progress on his or her own personal projects and consult with Adrian Fogelin, award-winning author of seven young adult novels.

For other questions, or to be placed on a mailing list for future retreats, email FictionFriends@aol.com or phone (518) 623-9305 summer; (352) 463-3089 or 352-949-1706 transit.

The year of the hats. Or is it merely the first year of the hats?
The bar has been set rather high.
