Summer Retreat

Brave Voice Summer Retreat

Brave Voice Summer Retreat

A Refreshing Workshop & High Tea in the Country

1 – 5 p.m., Saturday, July 27, Lawrence, Kansas

SOLD OUT: Our retreat is full. If you’d like to be put on the wait list or be notified when we schedule another retreat, please email Caryn here. 

Join Caryn and Kelley at our friend Lorel’s beautiful country home, just south of Lawrence, for an afternoon of refreshing creativity on the page and aloud in writing and music.

We’ll have ample time for relaxing and visiting, including over high tea — yes, scones, shortbread, tea sandwiches and more (including gluten-free delights) — in between writing, singing, sipping iced mint tea or fresh lemonade, and enjoying high summer together. 

Lorel’s house is well-air-conditioned too with lots of writing perches inside and out, for the writing workshop Caryn will lead. The piano sounds divine, so get ready to have Kelley play and sing for us as she leads us in singing (no one is asked to sing alone). All who wish to explore and celebrate their brave voices are welcome!
