Good Faith Media will host its first writers’ retreat in the colorful mountains of North Georgia on Oct. 19-21, 2022.
After the 2021 retreat was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, GFM worked with program guests and Amicalola Falls Lodge to confirm availability in 2022.
GFM invites you to join author/playwright Anne Nelson, singer/songwriter Pat Terry and novelist Pamela Terry, along with several GFM staff members, for a three-day retreat.
An award-winning author, Nelson’s books include Shadow Network: Media, Money and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right (Bloomsbury, 2019) and Suzanne’s Children: A Daring Rescue in Nazi Paris (Simon & Schuster).
She is a former war correspondent and human rights advocate who directs the International Program of the Columbia School of Journalism in New York City. Her play, The Guys, dealing with the aftermath of 9/11, has been widely produced on stage and as a feature film starring Sigourney Weaver.
A veteran songwriter, Pat Terry has penned top hits for country artists like Tanya Tucker and Travis Tritt. Others who have recorded his songs include B.J. Thomas, The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Rogers, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney and many others.
With his well-traveled Pat Terry Group in the 1970s, he was a pioneer of contemporary Christian music. His latest songs express honest struggles, sensitivity to suffering and reigning hopefulness.
Pamela Terry and her novel, The Sweet Taste of Muscadines (Penguin Random House, 2021), were featured on Good Morning America. She tells an intimate story of a woman’s return to her small southern hometown in the wake of her mother’s sudden death – only to find stunning family secrets.
A gifted storyteller, Pamela’s internationally popular blog, “From the House of Edward,” was named a top-10 home blog of the year by The Telegraph in London. Her second novel is in the publisher’s hands. She and her husband, Pat, live in the Atlanta area.
Whether a published author, an aspiring author, a book lover or someone seeking to enhance their writing skills or hear from those who craft words for a living, this retreat is open to all interested persons until capacity is filled.
The conference fee of $425 per person includes catered meals, all programming, writing consultation, optional free time activities and the daily park pass, internet access and other perks.
Lodging is offered at a discounted rate of $159 plus taxes per night, with a variety of room types.
