VOICES FROM MY RETREAT is a multi-faceted endeavor that will spark the interests of writers in the United States and Ukraine. First, we are offering physical space at MY RETREAT to writers and artists needing a quiet, simple place to work without distraction for a weekend, a week or longer. Our Thoreau-like cottages are reasonably priced and set up in a way conducive to the needs of creative souls. Cora Schwartz’s originating mission was, and still is to fulfill the dream of a famous Ukrainian writer Olga Kobylanskia. If you want to know more about Cora’s relationship to Olga you can click here to read about it and order a signed, discounted copy of GYPSY TEARS, LOVING A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR. Cora’s and Olga’s sincere wish was to provide a place for women to be creative and to make their women and their writing known to the outside world. Our audience will experience refreshing material coming from both countries through a Submission Platform focused on increased communication between Ukrainian and American writers who will invited to share their short works or excerpts.
Advertising offering services and opportunities in the writing world will be accepted with the understanding that the current economic situation in Ukraine is being taken into account. Our Book Shop will be stocked with reasonably priced, hard cover books for USA customers and digital books to those outside the country.
Voices From My Retreat is a labor of love. We do invest a lot of time and energy in our mission. If you find enjoyment or inspiration here, please do consider helping us along with a donation. We hope to offer small acceptance payments to submitting, Ukrainian writers.
