reNEW - retreat for New England Writing

Renewed in knowledge after the image of Him. Colossians 3:10

“reNEW is such a special community of writers. The encouragement, the professional sessions and workshops, and the amazing support is why I keep coming back.”

“Having a weekend away to connect with God and other writers was a balm for my soul and
a kick in the pants to get back to writing.”

“Spiritual inspiration, professional development and companionship for the journey in one conference.”

“The balance of time to write, time to learn, time to connect, and time apart with the Lord
proved unique and welcome. “

“God continues to use reNEW to grow me into a woman who communicates
His encouragement and pupose.”

 

 

 

reNEW is a retreat for New England Writing open to all beginning and seasoned writers and speakers who desire to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world. At reNEW, we believe the core of our calling as writers and speakers is faithfulness to Christ, emphasizing the need to grow deep inwardly, which in turn affects our outward reach. Find out more about us here. For our first three retreats, we were known as “New England Christian Writers Retreat” – same community, just a new name. Our community exists that you might renew:

  • Your faith in Christ and commitment to deep spiritual growth — “after the image of Him.” (Colossians 3.10)
  • Your vision for sharing your unique story and message through writing and/or speaking.
  • Your relationships and encouragement of others in this creative community.
  • Your craft and skill in all areas of communication – “renewed in knowledge” (Colossians 3.10)
  • Your soul, through a deliberate time of retreating from ordinary life.
  • Your courage to share your words with a broken world.

In our fourth year, we met for reNEW 2017 at the lovely 48-acre Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford CT during the fall – October 6-8, 2017. Select PHOTOS to see pictures from our weekend.
