|“I had a spectacular week at Doe Branch. All in all, it is a perfect place for inspiration, for starting or re-starting your writing life.”
“An extraordinary value. . . . I learned a lot in a short period of time, lessons that I’ve employed already in my writing.”
Imagine a week away from everyday cares and responsibilities — a time to write, reflect and engage with a small group of other writers. With an accomplished writer and teacher as your mentor. And beautiful surroundings, comfortable rooms and delicious meals. Doe Branch Ink, a writers’ retreat located on 50 acres nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, offers all this and more. Just 30 miles north of Asheville in lovely Madison County – “The Jewel of the Blue Ridge” – our retreat takes its name from a spring fed stream that flows from high in Pisgah National Forest into the French Broad River, a protected National Scenic Waterway. Fall is a beautiful season at Doe Branch: beautiful colors, warm days and cool evenings. Enjoy our trails, streams and porch rockers as you focus your creative energies on your personal writing goals.
|We welcome writers of all levels and all genres to our workshops; what matters is a sense of purpose and willingness to participate in a supportive community. During the week you will have substantial time for your own writing in addition to workshop time and shared meals. Participants have one-on-one conversations about their goals with the writers-in-residence based on a writing sample submitted in advance. Writers-in-residence also lead discussions and readings; there is no formal course work Above all, Doe Branch Ink offers a chance to get away from everyday responsibilities and time to write and talk to others about writing.
Workshop fees depend on room choice and average $1,000 for the week, including lodging, meals, refreshments and program fees. If you register with another person you are eligible for discounts and additional savings if you share a room.
Please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or suggestions. And feel free to forward this to friends who may be interested. We hope to see you soon at Doe Branch Ink.
