Held at the Silver Spur Guest Ranch, authors and friends of The Wild Rose Press, gathered for a weekend of workshops, writing time, good food, horseback riding, campfires, good food, hayrides, collegiality, did I mention good food?, and just plain fun. We had plenty of opportunities to learn from real-life wranglers and cowboys, to see the longhorn up close. A highlight was a performance by the World’s Champion trick roper, Kevin Fitzpatrick.
The staff of TWRP made themselves available for questions about the publishing world and TWRP in particular. Rhonda Penders, Editor-in-Chief of TWRP, did an outstanding job in making participants feel welcome. They plan to return to the Silver Spur Guest Ranch for their next retreat, tentatively set for 2014.
