Author Dana Stabenow is attempting to establish a writer’s retreat for women in a town in Alaska where my sister lives. Dana writes the Aleut P.I., Kate Shugak mystery series that I have followed for years. http://www.14news.com/story/21976503/alaska-author-wants-to-build-writers-retreatvery
Homer already has a successful annual writer’s conference that I have been trying to make it to for the last 3 years. The Kachemak Bay conference will be held June 14-18 this year. Last year I came closest when I won half a scholarship. Still did not make it. Check it out: http://writersconference.homer.alaska.edu/
My favorite thing about Homer, Alaska is my sis, Sharon, and her husband, Captain Honey (actually Tim). I have spent a few weeks with them each summer for the last several years. From their beautiful home with my sister’s real estate business below, to fishing from their boat, to their wonderful cabin across the bay, to flowers on my bedside table, it always feels like a glamorous vacation to me. http://www.alaskarealestateinhomer.com/
