Hocus Pocus Beast Retreat

April 26–29, 2018

Outside Asheville, NC

I’ve designed this retreat as a witchy and wonderful four-day creativity jumpstart to help you make good progress on your project as well as regain momentum and flow in your writing life.

It’s being held in a beautiful spot near Asheville, where we’ll have the entire lodge to ourselves (as well as spectacular grounds outside in full mountain springtime mode). We’ll be talking beforehand so that I’m familiar with your goals for your project and can support and guide you as you move towards them. The weekend will be relaxed and cozy—but with lots of marvelousness stitched through it.

The retreat’s limited to fourteen participants. Registration deadline is March 10th.

Retreat Includes

  • One-on-one editorial mentoring before, during and after the retreat. If you’ve considered working with me, this is a fantastic way to get guidance on your project, whether it’s at glimmering new-speck stage or further along.
  • Immersive workshops where we’ll approach craft and writing in unexpected fun ways.
  • Daily gentle, all-levels yoga.
  • Wonderful organic meals… and more.

If you have a project, the weekend’s prompts and workshops have been planned to carry you more deeply within it. And if you’re currently feeling creatively frizzled and out of touch with your writing—never fear, we’ll be refilling that cauldron.

The Retreat Setting

The Beast Retreat is being held at Bend of Ivy Lodge, a half-hour’s drive north of Asheville, NC. It’s a gorgeous spot, set on sixty acres or so in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It edges up to a river called the Ivy, and there are gardens, goats, and ponds, as well as lots of lovely trails through the woods. It’s magical.
