CreativityRetreats_OrangeTools_CircularType_HighestResolutionImageNOVEMBER 2017: NANOWRIMO

We all know how easy it is NOT to write, so this Fall we set you up to succeed with our dear friends at Ideasmyth to launch residencies and retreats at our welcoming and wonderful Wilburton Inn.

November is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but any kind of creative can enjoy the benefits of getting away from it all for one of our Master Class 3-day weekend retreats and/or longer residencies (up to the whole month–you decide!).  

In a world where tranquility and natural beauty feel in ever more short supply, let your muse be restored by the breathtaking views of the 30-acre hilltop estate at the Wilburton Inn. The range of lodging options allow you to choose a room to be as social or as hermetic as you like. (All rooms have a desk!) And for those who seek like-minded souls, master class participants will enjoy the camaraderie of fellow creatives in session, in the dining room, reading event and in the Inn’s magnificent mansion library. You can also choose to partake in other (optional) activities such as: local hiking, yoga/ meditation classes, massages, creatively stimulating tours at The Inn’s Museum of the Creative Process.

All offerings are designed to support all creatives in learning valuable writing techniques and creativity hacks and provide meaningful career boosts. So whether you need to finish that book manuscript for a publisher’s deadline, that PhD thesis, that magazine article, that script, this is the perfect haven for doing it!

Don’t recycle that resolution in 2018, commit to finishing that project by signing up today!
