New to writing, or a published or soon-to-be-published author?  
Whether you choose to attend online or in-person, a Women Writers’ Circle retreat gives you the opportunity to hone your craft, develop new skills, and gather priceless feedback, encouragement and support of other writers.
Each Women Writers’ Circle retreat includes WRITING WORKSHOPS WITH ESTABLISHED AUTHORS.
Our 2023 retreats will feature bestselling authors Jacquelyn Mitchard (works include The Deep End of the Ocean, inaugural selection of Oprah’s Book Club), Karen Dionne (The Marsh King’s Daughter), and Ann Wertz Garvin (founder of Tall Poppy Writers, author of I Thought You Said This Would Work).  Our list of Kentucky authors (featured in our September Kentucky Writers’ Retreat) will be announced soon. 
Our “WRITERS READING” SESSIONS are included in both online and in-person retreats and offer participants the chance to share their work with other writers, plus gain feedback and support during FEEDBACK/DISCUSSIONS led by former Creative Writing Instructor and Writer Mollie McClure.
All retreats also include ADD-ON OPTIONS, such as FIRST PAGE REVIEWS and/or extensive DEVELOPMENTAL REVIEWS with Author Jacquelyn Mitchard and 5-minute Pitch Your Novel sessions (our February Writers’ Weekend includes a PITCH YOUR NOVEL session with Jeff Kleinman, founding partner of Folio Literary Management!).
Organic, vegetarian breakfasts, lunches and dinners are included in all retreats at in-person retreats at Snug Hollow Farm.
In-person Tybee Island and Asheville, NC retreats include continental breakfasts, snacks, and a special Farewell Dinner (some details vary).
