Hi folks – I am posting today to remind you of the upcoming deadline for the Time2Write retreat. I am going to be one of the hosts for this event, and will be helping with the cooking and cleaning… so y’all can relax and write… draw… take photos… hike… pray… knit.. whatever you need to do! See the details below!



Do YOU need some alone time to write? Would you like to get away to a rustic lodge with just you, your computer, and a handful of fellow writers for some focused writing time? How about a chance to have your meals prepared for you, your dishes washed by someone else and no chores to distract you for a couple of days? If so… this TIME2WRITE! weekend is for you.

In beautiFrustrated writerful Black Mountain, NC, we will hide away at Tarheel Lodge for 48 hours of quiet and seclusion to write.

Five meals are included in your stay at TIME2WRITE as well as snacks. If you have special dietary needs or allergies please feel free to bring your own. As stated, snacks will be provided, but everyone is welcome to bring a snack/dessert to share with the rest of the attendees…or to hideaway in your bedroom for those late night munchies.

If you have any questions, please email Donna (
