CVWG Forms New Partnership


The Chippewa Valley Writers Guild has partnered with the Novel-In-Progress Bookcamp & Writing Retreat to offer Guild members a discounted rate at NIP events.  

Each spring the NIP offers a six-day residential workshop for writers of book-length manuscripts and a concurrent residential writing retreat in southeast Wisconsin. The next Bookcamp and Retreat will be held May 7-13, 2017 in southeast Wisconsin.

“For those who can’t wait for Cirenaica’s summer retreats, this sounds like a great chance to get a head start,” said Guild founder B.J. Hollars.  

“The Novel-In-Progress Bookcamp’s award-winning staff and guest instructors, all published authors, editors, or literary agents, provide advice specific to your work-in-progress, hands-on writing instruction, and the latest information on today’s rapidly changing publishing industry,” said NIP founder and director Dave Rank.

The concurrent writing retreat provides six days of personal writing time with opportunities to discuss writing issues with the NIP staff and guest instructors and chat with fellow writers in a relaxed environment focused on the writing craft.

NIP also held its first one-day “So You Want to Start a Novel!” workshop for novice novelists in October, an event they plan to hold again next year. 

“We welcome the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild as another of our formal supportive Friends. Members of the CVWG now are eligible to attend our Bookcamp for a discounted price that will save them $45 when they register,” Rank said. “As an NIP Friend, the CVWG agrees to help promote our programs.”
