Have you ever dreamed of a writing getaway?
Ever longed to escape to a place where the only thing that mattered was your writing?
Ever imagined yourself in a writer’s paradise where creativity flowed naturally and beauty was all around you?
Then come join me for a life changing retreat of writing, creative exploration and meditation in tranquil Costa Rica.
A Typical Day
Begin your writing day with a yoga session on a hilltop pavilion overlooking the ocean. Enjoy a home-made breakfast, and then find your perfect writing spot: an outdoor writing lounge, a cozy couch, a secluded hammock, or the comfort of your own room for a day spent with your writing.
Throughout your day, enjoy opportunities for screenwriting lectures, discussions, readings of student work and feedback sessions with your fellow students, or just escape from it all and be alone with your thoughts on the hidden white-sand beach only steps from the hotel.
When your work is done, cool off with a dip in the fabulous pool or a walk in the forest, and then join your fellow students for a home cooked dinner, chat about your writing and share your experiences.
The Perks of Exclusivity
Each night, we’ll have movies under the stars, projected on a huge screen, as well as discussions, seven-act structure breakdowns, and special surprises designed to capture the spirit of Costa Rica and put you in touch with your creativity.
We’ve rented the entire hotel for the exclusive use of our writers, ensuring that your writing day will be free from distractions, and surrounded by a community of fellow writers as dedicated to their craft as you are to yours.
Classes & Workshops
Every retreat is different, because each retreat is built around the specific needs of our writers, assuring everyone who attends gets the individualized attention they need. Here’s a brief list of some of the classes offered at last year’s retreat:
