News for writers: Upcoming writer’s retreats at gorgeous Earthshine Lodge in WNC

IMG_4024Exciting news for my fellow writers in need of RETREAT!

I just spent the morning at 3,000 feet, on a cool, misty mountaintop alight in spring green, brainstorming with Ali Lien, the co-founder and co-owner of Earthshine Lodge in Lake Toxaway, N.C. I’m crazy excited–literally, kid-on-Christmas-morning excited–to announce that I’ll be directing a series of writer’s retreats there, hopefully beginning in Fall 2019.

We’re still in the planning stages, but our hope is to provide a series of long-weekend retreats tailored to different types of writers in different stages of their careers, who may have different creative needs. Retreats will be crafted to appeal to established writers simply in need of peace and quiet and time to write, to beginning writers eager for workshop time and manuscript evaluations, to any writer in between. We’re also planning on a retreat specifically geared to writers who are also parents: this, my friends, will include childcare.

There will be roaring fires in stone fireplaces, campfires and star-gazing IMG_4037outside, hiking on the established trail system, and potentially even yoga! There will be gorgeous views of the Pisgah National Forest and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. And there will be coffee. Lots of coffee.

Trust me, y’all. This place is magic. I can’t wait to show it to you.

Be on the lookout for more information and news in the coming weeks.
