  1. The Novelist Retreat held in the beautiful Blueridge Mountains of North Carolina October 16, 2016 – October 20, 2016

    October is the peak season for leaf color in the mountains of western North Carolina and the perfect time for novelists to gather for inspiration, encouragement, improving skills and practicing creativity. If you don’t have an idea in mind, this retreat is for writers wanting to learn more about the craft and creativity of writing novels – all genres- contemporary and historical. http://ridgecrestconferencecenter.org/event/novelist#.V-F-gjVnckw
