This has been an exciting month at the Hrkach household. #3 son graduated from Ottawa University (photo to the right) a few weeks ago and #4 son graduated from high school yesterday. At the university commencement, the speaker said that with new technology and healthier lifestyles, many of the students (22- and 23-year-olds) could expect to live another hundred years. Therefore, they could “return for the 200th anniversary of the university in 2115.”
Another reason it’s been a busy month is because the conference committee has been finalizing its plans for the Catholic Writers Conference Live, set to take place July 22-24th in Somerset, New Jersey. If you’re planning to attend and haven’t registered, please do so ASAP at this link.
A group of Indie Catholic authors have gotten together for a huge group sale. If you’re interested, check it out here.
Are you working on a unpublished manuscript? Would you like feedback from more experienced authors? We have active critique groups for both fiction and non-fiction. Just let me know if you’re interested and I’ll connect you with the right person.
Finally, the Catholic Writers Retreat will be taking place in late October. I’ll be attending and looking forward to some reflection and writing time! Here’s the information: Catholic Writers Retreat: Your Word is My Delight. October 25-29, 2015. St. Francis Retreat Center, 703 E. Main Street, DeWitt, Michigan 48820. Register on line at this link. Click on “Other Offerings,” or call 866-669-8321. $490 for five days.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Enjoy the warmer weather!
