Writers’ Retreat at the Laity Lodge

The Writers’ Retreat at Laity Lodge in the Hill Country of central Texas affords an amazing setting for this unique opportunity to discover further the craft of writing. Expert writers will be presenting workshops. All of this with the relationships gained from being with editors, creatives and writers creates a rare chance to fan the flame of writing. The Laity Lodge Writers’ Retreat is giving away one free admission and travel based on entries like this blog post. Why should I go?

I am an accidental writer. Several years ago I started this blog thinking no one would ever read it. After all, I thought musicians surely had their niche so why should I write? Years later I have found a growing audience of fellow creatives and leaders who share in the conversation on this blog and my podcast Worship Mythbusters. Currently, I am working on a book that may be presented to publishers in the near future. The recent major changes in my vocational life make this the perfect season to forge a new path. It seems we all have a story to tell. And, I would love to sharpen the saw and learn to tell mine better.

I encourage my writer friends to check out this amazing opportunity. Have any of my readers been to a writers’ retreat? If so, please share your experiences.

  1. This is the same campgrounds I worked at two summers ago Laity Lodge Youth Camp was the place – I also do Family Camps out there.It is a beautiful place – and an awesome location to get closer to God.
    You have NO cell reception out there – so it is easy to concentrate on the Lord and what He has for you.

    I am a noobie writer – and if I could get out there with just a bible, a notepad, my macbook pro, and some coffee I bet things would improved in a HUGE way. I really wish I could go to this writers retreat. That would be amazing.

  6. John is right. It’s an awesome location, so beautiful. Last year when I was at the Writers Retreat, I did manage to find a place on the top of a mountain that had cell reception. That being said, it’s still a great place to hear from God!
    Hope to see you there. And welcome to The High Calling!
