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—only 5 writers plus myself—and because this luxury retreat is expensive to run and takes a lot 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, 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; the price and the fact that women have to travel to join us attracts motivated and talented writers.
Join us for this inspirational retreat—you’ll increase your confidence, focus, and productivity, and join a new circle of passionately creative literary companions! Let’s make memories with new friends, shall we?
