Discover new writing retreats and find out why attending one might be the best investment for your writing and publishing goals.

What else do you need to reach your writing and publishing goals?

  • Focusing 100% on your writing with no interruptions?
  • Full access to writing coaches for one or two weeks?
  • Conversing and brainstorming with fellow writers during the day or evening?
  • Being surrounded by scenery that fills your creative well?

That’s exactly what I want all writers to experience, so I created the Writing Retreat Sampler events to:

  • Showcase writing retreats from around the world.
  • Give you tips and advice on finding a writing retreat that helps you achieve your writing and publishing goals.
  • Share great ideas on how to carry your motivation and support from the writing retreat with you after you return home.

If this is what you’re looking for, you won’t want to miss this event.
