Retreat for the Writer's Soul by: Melanie Steele is an online 21 day workshop. It is truly a wonderful experience and is very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this workshop as a writer. This workshop truly allowed me to think outside the box and give up excuses as to why I was not writing. It also helped me to commit to 15-30 minutes a day to write.
Melanie Steele is now offering several more trainings online that are one day trainings for positive everyday living. She is a great presenter and her trainings are wonderful to help a person relax and focus on themselves. I highly recommend her trainings.
Third Annual Creative Hands and Minds (art and creative writing) Event was a huge success. Thank you to every one who entered and to everyone who attended the event.
