Attendance is limited in both tracks. Registration opens May 1.

Get away from the busyness of life for a weekend this fall

Take time to slow down at our annual retreat for creative people along the scenic banks of the Jacks Fork River in the historic Ozark Waterways. There will be time to learn and time to create. Participants will stay in rustic cabins and enjoy family-style meals in the dining hall. Grab a friend and register early!

There will be two new sessions this fall, each limited to 15 participants. More information to come.

Fee: $240 for MSTA members; $280 for nonmembers. Includes workshop fee and lodging in shared cabins Friday and Saturday; three meals on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.
