What writers are saying about this retreat:

“Page is like a Horse Whisperer, only for writers!” 

Leigh Haber, editor, NY

A thank you does not equate to how grateful I am for all your encouragement, insight and support this past year. I am so appreciative! Christy Heady, Coaching Client, South Carolina

“Thank you for the retreat. There was such freedom in knowing that I had days to be immersed in some aspect of writing, without worrying about meals, schedules, etc. To be able to live and breathe writing for that long was such a blessing. The retreat fulfilled all my expectations and more.”

– Danielle Emond, President, Black Hills Writers, South Dakota, Fall Equinox Mt. Vernon group retreat, 2007

“Thank you again for such a lovely and productive retreat. You were hostess and mentor extraordinaire. I am continuing on my path of inspiration and determination These are the things I am taking home from this retreat: inspiration; extensive list of resources and great handouts; tips on how to better integrate reading, research, and disciplined writing into my life through the establishment of new patterns and daily/weekly/monthly/annual goals; a beautiful new journal; a notebook of ideas, thoughts, plans; an index of journals; a new friend. Thank you for opening your lovely home, sharing your enthusiasm and expertise, and for the pampering…you thought of every detail.”

- Julia McSherry, Colorado, private Mt. Vernon retreat, 2008
