"Get away, write a song and meet some good people. A songwriting retreat where like-minded souls gather, and quietness, time and collaboration quench your tired creative mind. ASR created a balanced retreat that was open, welcoming and challenging. A memorable time that was fun and reflective and edged me closer in the direction of creative growth. This retreat is a winner in my books, just say’n." - Sara Polanski
