August 11th-14th in Stanford, KY
The signature program of Wedgwood Circle’s Literature Center, GoodLit supports up and coming, faith-driven writers with mentorship, resources, and creative writing retreats to help them flourish as future published authors in the mainstream media.
Established in 2015, GoodLit was created to provide essential support and mentorship for writers who are new to the publishing world and seeking to create good, true, and beautifully authored books for the common good.
The annual GoodLit Retreat is a four-day gathering that brings together award-winning authors and industry leaders to mentor a new generation of aspiring writers. Hosted in Stanford, Kentucky, GoodLit writers take part in a series of workshops, enjoy personal writing time to develop their craft, receive one-on-one mentorship, and gain renewed creative energy from intentional rest in the beautiful Kentucky countryside.
All expenses associated with the retreat, including travel and lodging, are covered by The Wedgwood Circle. If desired, a writer may choose to extend their stay through Sunday, August 18th, for a longer writing retreat.
GoodLit was created for aspiring authors on the verge of their first publishing deal who are seeking to make a meaningful impact on the culture at-large. They are driven by their faith and aspiring to write books for a mainstream audience.
