The Southern Scribe Society is a regional writing group based in North Georgia. Think of it as a home for us to get ideas and feedback from one another. It's a place to commiserate on our struggles and celebrate our wins. SSS is more of a support group than a critique group, but we pride ourselves on our collaborative nature.
All genres are welcome.
This retreat is for women writers who are looking for an opportunity to work in peace on whatever creative endeavor she chooses. The retreat runs from March 1-3, 2024.
The $295 investment includes a 2 night stay in a 5 star Airbnb in Ellijay, GA in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. We will provide 4 meals, plus snacks and drinks (water, tea, soft drinks), beautiful scenery and wildlife, connection with other writers, and a fun swag bag.
Your time is your own to spend how you choose, but a loose itinerary is offered for those who would like to participate.
Friday: Arrive between 5 and 6 pm. We sit down together for a meal and spend some time getting to know each other better. After supper, we can brainstorm our projects and enjoy the night out in the hot tub, by the fire pit, or in the arcade downstairs.
Saturday: Writing day! Breakfast is served, and we begin writing. There are plenty of spaces for us all to spread out and write, both inside and outside. At lunch we reconvene, discuss our progress and if anyone is interested, we can share some of our work as well. After lunch, we get back to work writing our wonderful and powerful words. For supper, we go out on the town for a meal at any of Ellijay's restaurants we choose. (The cost of this meal is not included.) Upon our return, we continue to enjoy the beautiful amenities this cabin has to offer, and we settle in for the night.
Sunday: Depart Breakfast is served, and we tally up our word count for the weekend, pack up, and head home refreshed and inspired.
