Bend of Ivy2“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” —Walt Disney

Are you ready to immerse yourself  in a weekend of writing without interruption in the mountains of Western Carolina? Writing does involve commitment and blocking out time to get stories, memories and characters down on paper. What if you were to grab your power so you can dream and accomplish your dreams of writing your story? Sure you can read books, take classes at night, but it’s only when you truly get away from your everyday life will you have the chance to cement your writing passion to make it a part of your life in the future.

If you want to live the “Writing Life,” then read on!

More Info on this Retreat:

Together over the course of this weekend, we’ll delve into our stories of defining moments, healing and self discovery through writing exercises, guided meditations, readings and discussions. 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.

Participation limited to 15 women writers of any genre and experience. Please submit a one-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 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.



Spaces are filling fast and now’s the best time to make your reservation for an awesome weekend.
