Join NYT-bestsellers Beth Revis and Rachel Hawkins and award-winner Cristin Terrill in Hartwell, Georgia, 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, Rachel and Cristin in a series of workshops and meet with each author one-on-one for a consultation about your current manuscript and goals. 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? Grab a new friend for a game of pool or go for a paddle on the lake. After a delicious dinner made by our private chef, get some more writing done or relax with s'mores around the lakeside fire pit.

You'll leave with new words written, a new perspective on your writing and future career, and a new community of writer friends to continue the journey with.
