The Doe Branch Ink – A Writers’ Retreat

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Doe Branch Ink is a writers’ retreat located on 50 acres nestled in the 
Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Just 30 miles north of Asheville 
in lovely Madison County – “The Jewel of the Blue Ridge” – our retreat 
takes its name from a spring fed stream that flows from high in Pisgah 
National Forest into the French Broad River, a protected National Scenic 

We offer writers experiences of two kinds: in the late 
spring and early fall, we organize facilitated writing experiences 
for a small group of guests with successful writers in residence who 
are also proven teachers. At other times of the year, our guest house 
is available to rent for individual writer’s leaves or writers groups
 (and book clubs), both short and  long-term.
We welcome writers of all levels and all genres to our workshops; what matters
 is a sense of purpose and willingness to participate in a supportive community.
During the week you will have substantial time for individual writing, interactions
with a writer-in-residence, and evening readings — plus time for walks and porch
 rockers. Participants have one-on-one conversations about their goals and work
 to date with the writers-in-residence based on a writing sample submitted in 
advance. Writers-in-residence also lead discussions and readings; there is no
 formal course work Above all, Doe Branch Ink offers time away from daily 
activities and time to write and talk to others about writing.
Workshop fees depend on room choice and average $1,000 for the week, including
lodging, meal refreshments and program fees. 
Please write us at if you have questions 
or suggestions.
