[box] Dream It, Do it: Women’s Writing Retreat with Alice Osborn Bend of Ivy Lodge, Marshall, NC outside of Asheville, NC 3717 Bend of Ivy Rd. Marshall, NC 28753 Fri-Sun Aug 23-25, 2013[/box]

DR9A2793Immerse yourself in a weekend of writing without interruption in the mountains of Western Carolina. This is your answer to, “I’ll write when I can find the time!” Empowered women are powerful writers—grab your power so you can dream and accomplish your dreams of writing you story! Together over the course of this weekend, we’ll delve into our stories of defining moments, healing and self discovery. There’ll be plenty of time for reflection and individual writing during the day, and on Saturday night we’ll share our work over marshmallows and fellowship. Bend of Ivy Lodge is an intimate retreat setting surrounded by woods, rivers and streams that will foster community and creativity. Relax by the waterfall, hear the call of herons and walk the many trails on the converted tobacco farm property. For more info about Bend of Ivy Lodge, visit www.bendofivylodge.com.

Participation limited to 15 women writers of any genre and experience. Please submit a three-page writing sample with your registration to Alice Osborn so I can best accommodate your experience at this retreat. You’ll be treated to six organic vegetarian/vegan meals and snacks! And we’ll feed you before you leave the retreat on Sunday. Bring your hearts, your pens and paper! All writers receive a 30-minute consult with Alice Osborn.
