Dream It, Do it: Women’s Writing Retreat with Alice Osborn

More info on the 2015 Dream It, Do It Women’s Writing Retreat is coming soon.

Our 2014 Retreat was a tremendous success!

Bend Of Ivy Lodge

Immerse 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 your story! Together over the course of this weekend, we’ll delve into our stories of defining moments, healing and self discovery.

“The value of the retreat was beyond words. It was such a safe space to express myself verbally, and through the written word. The beauty of the area was so refreshing, that it felt like a renewing of my spirit. I would recommend this retreat to anyone who is willing to look within, heal, write, socialize, and have lots of fun!”—Tina Holbert, Garner, NC

There’ll be plenty of time for reflection and individual Bend of Ivy2writing 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.

Participation limited to 15 women writers of any genre and experience.

If you haven’t already worked with Alice, please submit a two-page writing sample with your registration to Alice Osborn to best accommodate your experience at this retreat. You’ll be treated to eight organic meals and snacks. Bring your hearts, your pens and paper.

All writers receive a 10-minute consult with Alice Osborn.

“I had a wonderful time! All the women who participated felt like kindred spirits, and I appreciated the space in which healing was allowed to take place. Alice’s prompt work and individual sessions were very inspiring, and helped give me the motivation to know I can complete my novel and have it published!”—Jerri Harrell, Raleigh, NC

“The location was simply perfect. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay there for a week. The food was beyond good, the best food I’ve eaten in a long time. Alice did a great job of blending together people with different personalities and stories. There was a great sense of support within the group.”—Elaine Bayless, Raleigh, NC

“The greatest gift you can give to yourself is the time and space to seriously work on your dream project. As women it’s hard to get away. The Dream It, Do It! Retreat gave me both the kick in the butt and the comforting space to visualize, plan, and work on my memoir. Now I am going to publish it. You deserve that same gift.” —Michelle Tackabery, Durham, NC
