The price is listed on the main retreat page, but in case you missed it, here are the details:
Your tuition covers all your expenses—private lodging in our oceanfront retreat home, scrumptious meals prepared by our private chef, three hours of personal coaching to address your obstacles, two rounds of feedback on your entire manuscript (a $4,000 value), on-site craft lessons determined by your needs, support from our intimate group of six gutsy women writers, and a personalized writing contract for finishing your novel post-retreat.
Depending on your choice of private rooms, the price ranges from $5,000 to $7,500 for the week: half due upon booking (to hold your spot) and the balance due 30 days before departure (or sooner if booking close to the start of the retreat).
This is a sizable investment, maybe more than you’ve ever spent on yourself! We women are so busy taking care of everyone and everything else that it’s rare and life-changing when we give ourselves such a gift. Because I keep the group so small, and because this luxury retreat is expensive to run and takes a vast amount of my own time and energy, not everyone can afford to spend a week with me. But for those who do, I work extremely hard to make sure the experience is priceless.
My goal is to get you past any obstacles that stand in your way and provide you with the support and tools and feedback you need to realize your dream of finishing your novel. I’ll make sure you get to The End, all while feeling inspired and confident.
The price is also valued as it is because I want to ensure we have a great group of dedicated and determined women; my pre-retreat interview, manuscript screening, and the fact that women have to travel to join us attracts motivated and talented writers. Those in crisis or writers who aren’t excited to do the work hardly ever apply.
I work exceedingly hard to make this the trip of a lifetime! I take care of all the behind-the-scenes details and bring my extensive fiction, teaching and facilitation experience to our work together, all of which creates a fulfilling and magical retreat for you like none other. One in which you’ll gain new writing and revision skills, increase your confidence and focus, and join a new circle of passionately creative literary companions! Let’s make memories with new friends, shall we?
