This morning I am thinking about YOU! I am thinking about WOC, writers, women, artists who may not take their art, their craft, their calling seriously. Women who for whatever reason don’t make the time for their art. Women who don’t value themselves enough to pay for something that would be so beneficial for them! I am thinking about writers who need time away from the routine to focus on their own projects. This retreat is for you! This is a space created with you in mind, a dream getaway on a beautiful land where there are stories of women gathering and howling, women from covens, women who practiced wicken and artists who have blessed this house and this land. Join us! You will be grateful you did.
