The Writing Retreat

by Julia Bartz

The enigmatic and intoxicatingly charming Roza Vallo writes dark, fantastical, sapphic horror that has developed a cult following. Alex is ecstatic to find out that she has secured a spot at Vallo’s exclusive writing retreat. And also terrified. Terrified because she hasn’t been able to write a sentence in months, terrified because her former best friend and current rival has also secured a spot, and terrified because at Vallo’s isolated mansion in the mountains, the pressure and games the writers are put through in the name of art start to push the bounds of reality, and sanity.

Deliciously horrific, and intensely readable, with twists galore. I couldn’t put it down!- Skye
