The WWSW Conference has given me a better understanding of the business side of books, but it was at the Intensive that I learned the basics of storytelling and received the one-on-one coaching I needed to write my own.
If you are serious about your work this intensive is a must! With one on one sessions, small critique groups, and short informational courses, I was given the direction I needed to finish a novel I had given up on. The supportive environment, new friends and great food are just an added bonus!
The intensive helped me nail my pitch, polish my proposal and start a promising conversation with an agent!

Location & Lodging
This year’s retreat will be held in the breath-taking Abbey near Piedmont, Okla.
In 1938, a group of Carmelite nuns came to Oklahoma. Due to the expanding growth of the state, the ever-expanding commercial business areas and noise from heavily trafficked roads, the Community relocated to a remote property near Piedmont, OK, in 1985. There the Nuns built a permanent monastery now known as The Abbey.
Today, though the nuns no longer reside at The Abbey, they continue the rhythm of prayer and contemplation according to the example of the first nuns founded by Saint Teresa of Jesus in the 1500’s in Avila, Spain.
Continuing the flow of their purpose, our primary propagation is prayer and healing, directed to serving and evangelizing the world, for the exclusive purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God. At the Abbey, prayer is our primary apostolate and our mission is to pray for the needs of the Church and people in Oklahoma and the world.
