Testimonials from the 2017 Spring Retreat at Oyster Point…

“I thought the day was wonderful. I loved that we were given short periods of time to write and share. The length of the program was perfect, especially for a Sunday! So many students want to write but just need a springboard to get them going. I truly enjoyed the entire day, and I thank Jennifer, Colleen, and the others that made the day such a fabulous experience!” – Marion L.

“First of all, BIG thank you for organizing such an enjoyable retreat. I hope there are more to come. I liked absolutely everything. From the organization, welcoming environment, activities, motivation to express ourselves through writing, ideas to develop the writer inside of all of us, the length of the retreat, not too short and not too long, the materials presented, and everything else.” – Sonia S.

“Thank you again so very much for the opportunity to join. It was an incredible experience and I wouldn’t change a thing. I would love to attend again in the future!” – Kelly C.

“Thank you for an absolutely wonderful writing retreat. Since I started teaching in New Jersey, I have struggled with finding the professional network that I craved. You just filled that void. I truly appreciate the experience, and your ability to create such an authentic writing space is a testament to your magic.” – Anna K.
