Winter 2016 Writers Retreat at The Narows

Join us for the first ever CCC Writers’ Retreat.  The retreat will be held at The Narrows in Zanesville, Ohio.

The Narrows is an easy 55 minute drive from Columbus. Just far enough to leave your distractions behind, but close enough to make it an easy breezy day trip.

At CCC, we’re serious about helping writers produce great work.  And our retreat will follow suit.  We’ll provide optional opportunities for breaking up the day, doing some fun stuff and engaging with other writers, but our primary focus is on providing dedicated, distraction-free time for you to work on the projects that are important to you.

The Narrows is a really cool space, and it’s big enough for us to provide several different writing environments.  Whether you prefer quiet solitude, a little chaos, or ambient music, I think everyone will find a spot that will really encourage productivity and creativity.

This event will be held all day on February 13th.  It’s up to you how you engage, but we’ll get started right at 8am and proceed until 6pm.  After it’s over, you’re invited to join us at Weasel Boy Brewing, a micro-brewery that shares the building, for dinner.

The fee for the retreat is $25 for CCC Writer and Sponsor Members (membership is $15 and $100 per year, respectively) or $35 for non-members.  That fee includes your access to the space all day, as well as snacks and drinks from favorite Zanesville businesses all day.  Lunch is also included.

We’re really excited for this event.  I think it’s a cool new development in what CCC has to offer.

Use the PayPal buttons below to make a reservation. Space is limited to 20 writers, so don’t hesitate to reserve your spot if you’re interested in attending.  Sorry, but we are not offering refunds.  Update: Wow! Due to tremendous response, this event is now full.  Please email us at with “Retreat Waiting List” in the subject line, and we’ll let you know of any cancellations.

  1. There is no address listed on The Narrows’ website. Please let us know where this is located. Thanks.

    1. Hi Ann Marie,

      The Narrows is located at 126 Muskingum Ave, Zanesville, OH 43701.

      We hope to see you at the retreat!

  2. It sounds like fun. A fine restaurant (Muddy Mizers) is next door with patio dining and large heaters for outdoor comfort. The restaurant interior highlights writer Zane Grey. It and the Narrows is adjacent to the scenic Muskingum River. The Brewery is one floor above the Narrows. Adequate free parking is across the street.

    I plan to be there but have no PayPal account. I will pay at the door. Would like to discuss agents/publishers and conferences with others
