You’re invited to an exclusive writers retreat weekend at the historic Anchorage 1770 Inn in the heart of beautiful Beaufort by the sea. Participating writers will immerse themselves in a collaborative experience with our distinguished faculty of award-winning writers and publishing professionals as they share their insights and experiences in the same generous mentoring spirit as the late Pat Conroy. In the retreat’s intimate setting, writers will get to know each other and our instructors over three days and two nights of empowering workshops, discussions, writing prompts, readings, critiques, and social gatherings.
Proceeds benefit the year-round educational programming of the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center, TripAdvisor’s top-ranked destination in Beaufort, winner of the 2019 Civitas Award for Tourism Leadership, an affiliate of the American Writers Museum, and an American Library Association United for Libraries Literary Landmark.
Retreat Faculty: Winners of the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction: novelists Mindy Friddle , Bren McClain , and Tiffany Quay Tyson ; poet, novelist, editor, and teacher William Walsh ; writer and author consultant Stephanie Austin Edwards ; and literary agent Emma Patterson.
