Third Annual Sylvan Lake Summer Retreat

Our retreat was held on Saturday, August 20th at the Sylvan Lake Library from 10:15 am to 4:30 pm. Once again, Sylvan Laker Moira Stelmack hosted the group.

Our morning program consisted of a round robin of questions. Each member had the opportunity to ask a “deep penetrating question” and the group gave advice on that topic. Questions ranged from character motivation to favourite social media platform to balance in the writing life to agent relationships and more.

Following the round robin, we enjoyed our bagged lunches, supplemented by fare from the Dairy Queen next door.

In the afternoon, we watched the documentary “Love Between the Covers”.

After the program ended, most of us headed over to the Top of the Hill Golf Course Clubhouse for a delicious buffet of a beef burger meal with three salads, baked potato and berry trifle for dessert. All that, and a spectacular view of the lake.
