The 2021 Clockhouse Writers' Conference & Retreat was five deeply-rewarding days of writing, reading, listening, noticing and offering feedback, and perhaps above all, connecting. Here's a photo of some of us at leave-taking -- and why are we all smiles, even though leaving can be so hard? Because it may have needed to be a leave-taking, but it wasn't an end. The Pt. Townsend Lighthouse 2022 will be in February (registration for that to open in October), and CWC&R 2022 will come back next summer. Follow us on our blog (http://www.clockhousewriters.com/blog), on Facebook, or on Instagram for alerts of these and other CWC events!
