“After much deliberation, I decided to take a leap and attend a Springfield Writing Retreat. This decision changed my life. What I didn’t expect though, was the amazing impact of the ongoing weekly writers' workshops. This weekly group keeps me on track and accountable for my own writing and teaches me, with the professional and gentle guidance from the much loved Karen Comer, to evaluate and discuss writing pieces submitted by others. I feel more of a writer than I have ever felt. I am deeply grateful to Karen and my fellow writers.”
