Friends Who Are Going
Event description


You know how you keep thinking if you just had a little bit of time, a little bit of encouragement, some guidance, you might just...

  • Have a song to share?
  • Be able to take that notebook full of songs and make them better?
  • Try writing collaboratively?
  • Be brave enough to sing in front of an audience?
  • Have some idea what to do next?

We think so, too.

So we'd like to give you exactly that: the time, encouragement, guidance AND collaboration you've been craving. This is a super intimate retreat with only 9 guests. This is a safe place for you to try something new. You can do it!


What if?

What if you start 2018 with a weekend retreat that feeds your body & your soul with rest, friendship and creativity? What if you let us help you start the new season inspired & motivated?

We would LOVE to do that.

Here's what we have in mind:

  • Nashville, Tennessee - Music City!
  • A gorgeous, recently renovated home in hip East Nashville
  • Intimate gathering - just 9 guests + Nicole Witt and Christa Wells
  • Talk sessions, co-writing sessions, song-sharing sessions
  • One-on-one feedback on your music
  • Fresh, healthy, delicious meals prepared on-site for us
  • Free time to rest, fellowship, create or explore
  • A la carte massage or facials!


  • New location in East Nashville!
  • One extra night! Thurs-Sun instead of Fri-Sun
  • More free time!
  • A la carte facial/massage & optional outing(s)

Okay, let's be real.

It's super hard as women to spend money on ourselves or take time away from other responsibilities. But we have both found it true that when we DO feed our souls and nurture our creativity, we return the better for it. We hope you'll make this a priority in your life and start the new year off with this sweet time of refreshment. Let us pour some encouragement into you.

You have something unique to bring to the table & we're eager to meet you & get to know you.

Please contact us with any questions you may have.

What's the refund policy?

The deposit is refundable minus any Eventbrite/Paypal fees through DEC 3.

AFTER DEC 3, any money paid is transferable but not refundable.

Registrations after DEC 3 must be paid in full at time of reservation.

Is this retreat only for women?

Yes. Sorry, guys!

Do I have to have a certain level of songwriting experience to come on this retreat?

Nope. Come as you are!

What if I have a lot of writing experience? Will I benefit from this retreat?

Yes! There's always so much to learn when we gather together with other artists. Our conversations, writing sessions, feedback, and the opportunity to ask any questions you like will make it a memorable and beneficial weekend for all of us.

If you're a highly seasoned writer, you won't be in a co-write with a new writer. We'll do our best to create well-balanced collaborations. You are even free to use the time to write on your own if that's your preference.

Is co-writing or performance mandatory?

No. This retreat is for you. Just let us know in advance if you would prefer not to participate in any co-writing.

How do I pay the balance? I only see deposit listed here.

After we receive your deposit, we'll email you with instructions for paying your balance. The balance is due Dec. 3.

I have food allergies. Will I be able to eat the prepared meals?

Absolutely. We'll ask you in advance for any food allergies & prepare meals that work for your dietary restrictions.

Can I see the full schedule in detail?

Yes. We'll publish that and email it to reserved guests as soon as it's finalized.
