The Environment
Tucked in the trees of Hocking Hills, the autumn writing retreat gathers like-minded women for a weekend of quiet creative exploration. With a wrap-around deck, fire ring, a loft, six bedrooms, as well as an on-property pond, the cabin allows each person sacred space to write and relax. A casual experience, we focus on the weekend’s purpose: writing. Common areas remain clean and cozy, with candles or incense lit throughout the day, to keep a welcome, inviting atmosphere. Nourishment, such as beverages and snacks, are available any time. To encourage self-exploration, art materials, such as collage or zine-making items, markers, paper, etc, are available all hours of the day. The absence of wifi allows each person to silence the mind of external pressures, and stimulate the creator within (though phones and laptops are welcome).

The Guests
Welcome, writers and non-writers alike. No matter where you are in your writing journey, you are among supportive friends. Expect a respectful, mindful group of women working on their own projects and seeking similar levels of stillness.

The Facilitator
As a writer and workshop facilitator, RaDonna helps others find their voice. She supports people on many levels of their writing journey within these relationships. To elevate the retreat experience, RaDonna intertwines her passions as a tarot reader and Certified Multi-Dimensional Intuitive Reiki Practitioner into daily activities. These activities will be part of each morning, to enhance the connectivity with your creative self.
