Welcome women writers of any genre, and at any level.
Come and spend a weekend with SistaWRITE, featuring 2014 North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame Inductee Jaki Shelton Green, along with editor Kerry Holjes and publisher & poet Melissa Hassard. Join us for two very special nights as we take over an entire bed & breakfast, Crews Inn, and make it our own. Space is limited for this one-of-a-kind women’s-only immersive experience.
The Outer Banks’ rawness of lore and coast will inspire you to dig into your own inner landscapes. We invite you to come unplug, make time for your creativity, and be nourished body and soul.
Special Treat: Island exploration with Crews’ Inn owner, Alton Balance.
You will have access to full-time, personal attention from each of the faculty, time to concentrate on your work, whether in revision or new material, manuscript in progress or an on-going poetry collection. Workshops and sensory experiences will charge your creativity and allow your focus to expand. Readings and evening salons will give you a chance to commune and share your work.
Whatever your project, let the ocean whisper your focus into overdrive. Join us.
Lodging and food included in Retreat cost.
