    Write Fresh retreat_Yulia

    Applications are now open for the Write Fresh Retreat, June 1-10, 2020 in the rustic art-village Kaptaruni, Belarus with mentor Harold Rhenisch.

    Enhance your writing skills within the charm and ease of traditional hospitality in an artists’ abode where what’s modern and crisp is nested in the rustic. Whether your path through the forest follows Leschii, the ancient man of the trees, the eternal birth and rebirth of Orthodox tradition, or the startling images of the northern orient that inspire modern and ancient Slavic culture, you will find your path here.

    Explore hands-on techniques, structural tricks, transformative revision methods and so much more to unleash your storytelling. Harold Rhenisch, the Write Fresh 2020 instructor has published thirty books of poetry, fiction, memoir, history, and environmental science, and has edited over 100 books of fiction, nonfiction, history, memoir, drama, spirituality and poetry for writers across North America and in Europe. His website is here.
