14th Annual Brave Voice May 19-24, 2019

Join us Sunday, May 19-24, 2019 for six days of immersing yourself into your creative spirit in the heart of the Flint Hills near Council Grove, KS. This is a great retreat for writers (of poetry, fiction, drama, non-fiction, journalism, memoir, etc.), or musicians of any kind, or anyone who wants to start writing and/of making music. Mornings are devoted to writing, songwriting and singing workshops (no experience necessary); afternoons for relaxing, wandering, getting a massage, creating art, music and writing; and evenings for inspiring performances. White Memorial Camp is on a peninsula in the middle of Council Grove lake, surrounded by hills and sky. Click here for more information. Register here. If you’re considering registering, jump on in — only four spots left.
