Writing by the Water

Join Us for Our 2024 Writers' Retreat: "Mastering the Bookends"

September 12–15, 2024
Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Enjoy lake living with a balance of activities and rest, including round table collaboration, blocks of time for writing, free time, fun activities, and writing instruction.

The focus of the retreat will be on crafting compelling beginnings and well-earned endings to your manuscripts—perfect for first-time writers to help get them started and for those who want to master the bookends! Each writer will have the opportunity to schedule private coaching with Cortney Donelson, ghostwriter, coach, and acquisitions editor, during the weekend.
