Writing in the Woods

fallWV3Berkeley County, West Virginia
October 20-22, 2017

Spend a weekend practicing yoga, writing, and slowing down while enveloped in peak fall foliage near Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.

This tranquility-filled weekend is for the writing curious to the journaler to the published author. Practice yoga, meditate, pen responses to writing prompts, learn inspiring writing tools, and explore your voice in a safe setting.

Nurture your creative spirit this fall through an escape into the woods: read in a hammock under the foliage, savor vegan s’mores over a campfire, sit by a roaring fire while penning prose, commune with nature.

You will leave inspired with a writing action plan, a belly full of homemade vegetarian meals and organic tea, and connections with like-hearted women.

This retreat’s for you if: you write, journal, blog, or doodle, want to share your experiences or dreams with the world, want to explore your authentic voice, like to learn new tips to increase writing in your life, or long to dabble in writing while doing yoga and meditating in the woods.

For those seeking adventure, we’re located next to the Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area with 75 miles of hiking trails nearby. For those seeking restoration, you’ll find a rejuvenating spa, heated pool, and whirlpool within walking distance.

Upon registration you will receive directions, packing list, and more.

Space is limited, early registration encouraged.
