Retreats and Contests and Winners, Oh My!

We've got sooo much happening here on the blog and for ANWA this week!

First of all, congratulations to Heidi Murphy for winning last week's drawing!  Heidi, message me at anwaevents at gmail dot com with your address and I'll get the book mailed out to you!

Second, this is our last week of the ANWA SUMMER CHALLENGE!  So we are going to do things a little differently.  You can enter UP TO THREE TIMES:

  • Post your numbers by NEXT SUNDAY 
  • Post THREE SENTENCES from your work in progress. 
  • Tell us one writing-related thing you accomplished this summer.
Because this is our last week, of course we have to go out with a bang.  So, in addition to having three chances to enter, the winner of our final week's challenge will also win these three items:

  • A $10 COLD STONE CREAMERY gift card

  • A signed copy of Cindy William's book:

  • Peggy Urry's ebook:


The Intermountain Retreat, "AIM FOR THE STARS" is coming up on September 19th and 20th. If what you really want is time to write, to socialize with other women who share your talents, and lots of yummy food then this retreat is for you.


We'd love to give four more people the chance to get away and have some fun, so we've decided to make it just a little sweeter:


This is how it works:  if you refer a friend and they attend the retreat, you and that friend will be automatically entered into the drawing for a gift bag.

1. an ANWA t-shirt
2.  $10 Cold Stone gift card!!!

3. A SIGNED Copy of MY DOUBLE LIFE by Janette Rallison

4. The e-book ARCHER'S HOLLOW by Peggy Urry

THAT is some serious swag, my friends.  Here's a few extra important details about the contest:
  • You or your friend must leave a comment HERE ON THE BLOG with their name and who referred them to the retreat
  • If you refer more than on friend your name will be entered twice
  • You do not have to be attending the retreat yourself to be part of the drawing
  • ALL FOUR REMAINING SPOTS must be filled for the drawing to occur
  • The contest will end this Friday, 11:59 pm Pacific time.
So go to and get a friend registered today!!!
