Just Write Image 1

Join us in beautiful North Carolina for a weekend set aside for you to JUST WRITE. Every meal will be provided. You will be surrounded by other women’s fiction writers. The best part? Time. The whole weekend will be dedicated to writing and talking about writing. There will be time built into the schedule to relax and enjoy being around other like-minded people. But more than anything, this is a working retreat.

For 3 days, we will write. No lectures, no workshops, just a simple focus on writing. Optional evening activities will be offered, as well as a discussion group or two. The only thing you need to think about all weekend is your story. We’ll take care of the rest.

In order to maximize intimacy and quality interaction, this retreat will intentionally be kept small – only 35 spots available. Set your calendar reminders now: registration begins July 15, 2019.

The Place

Just Write Retreat LocationThe Just Write Retreat will take over the Lodge at the Highland Lake Inn near Asheville, NC, an historic getaway with lots of rustic charm. We’ll have exclusive use of the building, which boasts a fabulous porch and a large, cozy lobby filled with comfy, fireside furniture.
Nestled on the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this location is a special place. The property includes a lovely little lake with kayaks for our use, trails to explore, and multiple hammocks for soaking up the peaceful atmosphere.

It sounds JUST about WRITE.
