- solitude and privacy to partner with your muse
- community to meet other writers traveling a similar path
- activities and excursions to spark your creativity
- writing prompts, exercises, and games to help you improve your craft and also be fun

The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains are the perfect backdrop for listening to your inner voice of inspiration and answering the call to write.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
~ Maya Angelou
With us, you’ll experience the perfect balance of inspiration and activities that stir your creative juices and a restful, restorative atmosphere to unwind and destress.
You’ll enjoy inspiring literary explorations and experiential writing.
Quiet time will allow you to reconnect with your inner voice and explore the desires of your soul.
You’ll experience the sheer joy of putting words on the page.
Each retreat is hosted and facilitated by women who are also writers and, thus, understand the unique needs of both new and experienced authors.
Supportive and trusted guidance is always provided.
Our retreats offer an escape from the voices of others in order to hear your own—and to hear the stories within, both personal and fictional, which are only yours to tell.
Opening our hearts to the stories asking to be told requires a safe atmosphere, free from judgment and expectations—you are assured of this among our groups.
At the retreat, you’ll join an uplifting community of like-minded women writers, learning and growing together.
Most women come to the retreat not knowing other attendees, but leave with strong and lasting connections to one another.
