This Spring conference is a perfect retreat/advance for depth writers. Every aspect gets nurtured.

What is the Guild? The IWWG, founded in 1976, is a network for the personal and professional empowerment of women through writing and open to all regardless of portfolio. As such, it has established a remarkable record of achievement in the publishing world, as well as in circles where lifelong learning and personal transformation are valued for their own sake. The Guild nurtures and supports holistic thinking by recognizing the logic of the heart--the ability to perceive the subtle interconnections between people, events and emotions- alongside conventional logic.

From the start, the Guild proposed the writing from personal experience as the beginning of this transformational process. Everyone in the Guild, sooner or later, cuts her teeth on the journal, the memoir, and the autobiography—like the scales on the piano—this daily practice does eventually make a "silk purse out of a sow's ear." It does develop writers into "writers." More importantly however, from the Guild's point of view, it furthers personal growth, transformation, and an authentic voice.
