Overnight workshop at the beautiful Farm at Weathers Creek. When have you ever attended a fireside writing workshop with a little wine? This overnight mini-retreat will focus on blogging and building your writer's platform.
This "edventure" event is organized by the Farm at Weathers Creek and will include meals. Writers will have glamping-style tents (glamorous camping) with air mattresses.
Susan Campbell plans writing workshops at the farm and contacted me after following my blog Write Naked. It was her idea to create an event surrounding all the topics I cover on my blog and this is the first time her farm has ever offered an overnight writing workshop!
Here is a tentative schedule: Arrive at 12PM on Saturday for an afternoon session centered on how search engines work, website know-how, and blogging. Afterwards enjoy your choice of free writing, exploring the farm, or yoga, followed by dinner. Sunday morning offers another session centered on how to use writing for the web to market your novels, memoirs, and other writing projects. The workshop will end with a big farewell farm brunch and conclude by 12PM on Sunday.
The Farm at Weathers Creek is located in Iredell County, a little over 2 hours west of Raleigh. Rates for the workshop have not been provided yet, but will be posted as soon as they are available. RSVP to receive updates.
MAY 2012 UPDATE: Fee for each attendee $150, includes air mattress tent camping under the stars. For additional $25 there are limited indoor accommodations (4 people maximum). Meals include Sat ~ afternoon snack , dinner, fireside s'mores, Sun ~ seriously delicious writers' brunch. **Email [masked] to claim your spot with WRITE NAKED in subject line.**
