“Open to anyone who loves words,” Good Faith Media will host its first Writers’ Retreat, Oct. 20-22, 2021, at Amicalola Falls Lodge in the colorful mountains of North Georgia.
Program guests include author/playwright Anne Nelson, singer/songwriter Pat Terry and novelist Pamela Terry, along with the Good Faith Media publishing and marketing team.
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 new novel, The Sweet Taste of Muscadines (Penguin Random House, 2021), were recently 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 works. 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.
