Join other women writers, published and unpublished, at Snug Hollow Farm B&B in Irvine, KY, a place known to attract and inspire musicians, artists, and, of course, authors from around the world. The SEPTEMBER AT SNUG HOLLOW WRITERS RETREAT provides the perfect time and place to work on your novel, short story, or other work(s) in progress. Retreat details: 

“FINISH YOUR NOVEL” WORKSHOP and “SHARE YOUR WORK WITH THE WORLD” WORKSHOP with the fabulous #1 New York Times Bestselling author, Jacqueline Mitchard. Ms. Mitchard will lead both workshops as part of the retreat’s Keynote and Farewell sessions. What does it take to write a novel worthy of becoming the inaugural selection for Oprah’s Book Club? Only one person in the world can answer that question, and we’re thrilled to have her as our special guest! Expect to be wowed, inspired, and in general, knocked off your feet. Finishing Line Press Publisher Leah Huete de Maines says “just one session with Jackie can change a writer’s life”–and we agree!  ENJOY…

*DEVELOPMENTAL WIP REVIEW AND PERSONAL ADVISING SESSION with AUTHOR JACQUELYN MITCHARD!  Submit 10 pp. of your work in  progress and receive an email with Ms. Mitchard’s developmental and editing comments followed by a personal advising/review session with the author (via zoom). 

TIME TO WRITE. You’ve heard of “porch sitting”? At Snug Hollow, that activity often morphs into “porch writing.” Prefer to write indoors? Choose one of the cozy reading and writing nooks Snug is so famous for, and “disappear” for as long as you’d like. If you prefer to take a long walk or hike to gather inspiration, then come back to your cabin and write, Snug Hollow, with 300 acres of trails, is the perfect spot for you. However you choose to spend it, you’ll have big blocks of time to write.

EVENING READINGS. Each evening, those seeking constructive comments and suggestions will have the opportunity to read their work. Share whatever inspires your work at the moment, whether by reading from a much-loved book or poem, a scene you’d like to incorporate into your work, and enjoy thoughtful and constructive comments from your fellow writers.

SNUG HOLLOW’S FABULOUS HOSPITALITY and OUTSTANDING ALL-INCLUSIVE CUISINE (think gourmet vegetarian meals you’ll tell your children and grandchildren about one day). Breakfasts and “Lunch on Your Own” baskets will be delivered to participants’ cabins. Dinner will be served at The Farmhouse, followed by reading and sharing sessions. Located in one of the most beautiful “hollers” in the Appalachian region, Snug Hollow Farm was named one of “50 Best Girlfriend Getaways in the South” and features unique hand-crafted cabins with cozy fireplaces and covered porches with spectacular views of babbling creeks, glorious wildflowers, abundant wildlife, and the surrounding mountains.
