Jack Jones Literary Arts is hosting its second annual writing retreat at Blue Sky Retreat, Taos, New Mexico. This two-week retreat will be held October 13- 27, 2018, and is open exclusively to women of color. Jenna Wortham joins us as our 2018 Writer-in-Residence.
As part of the retreat experience, Jack Jones is featuring daily Skype master classes with agents, editors and acclaimed women in publishing to promote networking, learning and engagement. These sessions are mandatory for retreat participants.
Professional and emerging women writers of color at work on book projects are eligible for residencies. Women with and without MFAs are eligible, and graduate students who are currently enrolled in a degree program are now eligible to apply for a fellowship. Unfortunately, the Blue Sky Retreat grounds do not support wheelchairs or walkers. We are making every effort to secure a location for 2019 that is both cost-effective and accessible.
