Dream It, Do it: Women’s Writing Retreat with Alice Osborn

Immerse yourself in a weekend of writing without interruption in the mountains of Western Carolina. This is your answer to, “I’ll write when I can find the time!” Empowered women are powerful writers—grab your power so you can dream and accomplish your dreams of writing your story! Together over the course of this weekend, we’ll delve into our stories of defining moments, healing and self discovery.

There’ll be plenty of time for reflection and individual writing during the day, and on Saturday night we’ll share our work over marshmallows and fellowship. Bend of Ivy Lodge is an intimate retreat setting surrounded by woods, rivers and streams that will foster community and creativity. Relax by the waterfall, hear the call of herons and walk the many trails on the converted tobacco farm property.

“I had a wonderful time! All the women who participated felt like kindred spirits, and I appreciated the space in which healing was allowed to take place. Alice's prompt work and individual sessions were very inspiring, and helped give me the motivation to know I can complete my novel and have it published!”
—Jerri Harrell, Raleigh, NC

"Alice, your first annual women’s writing retreat was truly amazing. It was so many more things than I expected: a sensory-filled experience (sights, food, sound, beauty), a religious experience with time to ponder and recreate our dreams, a safe place to be myself and many new friends, and a serene place to heal on many levels. Thank you again, Alice, for seeing it, feeling it, and trusting it in your own dreams to make it happen for us. Namaste."  
—Susan Bourland, Wake Forest, NC
