kayakingFor visitors and subscribers in or near North Carolina, or willing to travel here, I’ve opened registration for my inaugural Pen and Paddle!

If you love kayaking and writing, we’ll be doing both on Saturday, October 29th. Our shuttle leaves the cozy mill village of Saxapahaw, North Carolina at 10AM and we will paddle down (with the current) along flatwater (easy!) back to town. We’ll probably arrive back around 3PM or 4PM.

We will stop along the way and drift while writing. I often spy bald eagles and blue herons along the river, so we’ll let nature provide our writing prompts for the day. Fall colors will likely be turning, and I’m looking forward to that too!

The fee is $49 and includes rental of a single kayak, flotation device, paddle, all-day snacks, and bottled water. (If you own your own kayak, the fee is only $20.) Learn how to register for the writing retreat here.

With a special event like this – advance registration is required and will likely close sooner than anticipated. Register soon if of interest.
