As a writer and a runner, we know you travel. A lot. Or at least you'd like to travel more than you do. You might travel to run a couple of (overnight) races a year and attend a couple writing conferences a year. Wouldn't it be great if you could do both in the same trip? Now you can!
The goal of the Writers Who Run Retreat is to bring together like-minded individuals in regards to two seemingly different passions: writing and running. Yet, we know there's more to it than that. Through networking, you'll be inspired to keep writing and running even when you're not hanging out with each other.
The retreat begins with a dinner and an inspirational opening keynote speech. You'll enjoy three full days packed with a morning 2-mile trail run, breakfast, two 2-hour intensive workshops focused on craft and the business of writing, lunch, roundtable critique groups, free writing time, dinner, and a fun social event each evening.
The culminating event is participation in Saturday morning's 10k trail race through the forests of the Fontana Trail System in the Nantahala National Forest (included with retreat registration).
Registration for 2017 is NOW OPEN!
