Join NYT-bestseller Beth Revis and award-winner Cristin Terrill in Bernsville, PA, just an hour and  a half from Philadelphia, in a beautiful home on a private lake for five days of learning, writing, relaxation, and fun! 


With an intimate group of no more than fourteen writers, you'll learn craft tips and publishing secrets from Beth and Cristin in a series of workshops and meet with each author one-on-one for a critique of your current manuscript. Have more questions or need further advice during the week? No problem, because you'll be eating and writing and hanging out alongside the authors everyday and they are always happy to help.

After the morning dedicated to workshops, your afternoons are free for you to get some serious words in. Need to take a break? Go for a walk around the extensive grounds or grab a new friend for a round of ping-pong or bowling in the game room. After a delicious dinner made by our private chef, get some more writing done, go for a swim or paddle on the lake, or join a fierce group game of Mafia over rum punch.
