Writers Studio

The difference between the almost right word and the right word is … the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.


Makers Circle is the perfect place for a writers retreat. The landscape is inspiring, while nearby trails and sanctuaries provide the perfect place for clearing the mind or stirring the heart. 

Each resident is given an adjustable height work table in the interior group studio, perfect for those who prefer to write in the quiet company of others. If writing in private is more your style, we have small writing desks in your private room. And if you need a little more stimulation, we are a 7 minute drive from coffee shops and libraries.

Western North Carolina has a growing literary scene with access to public readings, poetry open mics, amazing public and university libraries, as well as a couple of thriving and inspiring independent books stores that host amazing writers and poets. 

If you are interested in working with a writing mentor while you are visiting, we can arrange that for you.
