2nd ANNUAL SPRING INTO FEARLESS WRITING
A CLARITYWORKS RETREAT FOR WOMEN with PEGGY TABOR MILLIN
Monday, April 29, 3:00 pm – Friday, noon, May 3, 2019
A writing retreat for 9 women at St. Francis Springs, a 25,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility situated on 140 acres of beautiful and peaceful wooded property that offers a natural setting, 34 miles north of the Piedmont Triad International Airport at Greensboro, NC. Engage with other women writers in a safe supportive writing circle. Explore the brook-side trails, walk the labyrinth, and discover quiet nooks for reading, writing, and contemplation.
The St. Francis Springs Center is a nonprofit inter-faith retreat center. ClarityWorks is not affiliated with this or any other spiritual or religious organization.
Open to new and returning participants at any level of writing, this 5-day, 4-night retreat provides ample time to sink into your writing. Here is the answer to all those times you’ve said, “If I only had the time!”
We inhabit two cottages on the woods’ edge separate from the main lodge. Each participant has a private bedroom and bath, with a scenic view of the property. Each cottage has 4 such bedrooms, a kitchenette, and a lounge large enough for a group meeting. Meals are served in the dining room of the main lodge. Mornings, we meet in the lounge of one cottage and use Centered Writing Practice to inspire new material and to explore writing tools and craft. Afternoons, we practice silence in the cottages while writing in our rooms, lounges, or outdoors. This time can also be used to hike the trails or nap. Before dinner, we have “conviviality,” a time for socializing with appetizers and a beverage of your choice. Evenings, we read our work and receive feedback, if we wish. We also have time for Q&A about writing craft.
Check-in is from 3 pm Monday with conviviality at 4:30 and dinner at 6:00 followed by an introductory evening program. Check-out is Friday by noon but lunch is available. There will be no program Friday morning, but you may stay on the campus until after lunch.
