From the first time I heard a writerly retreat horror story, I knew I wanted to do something to level things out…
The story went something like this: writer goes on a retreat/workshop/seminar and returns home feeling dejected and ashamed of their writing. And then they STOP writing. What?!
Thankfully, there are plenty of retreats out there that don’t foster such horrible feelings of doubt, but I knew I still wanted to do everything I could to offer as many writers as possible the kind of quiet, supportive and creative space that would allow them to reach real writerly flow.
Earlier this year, my beautiful biz partner in Storyteller Ink, Adrea Peters and I ran a retreat in Kauai. It was amazing (and we will certainly do it again), but one thing we both knew – we needed to offer more options!
Whether you are looking specifically for the travel aspect to light your writerly fire or just long for the space to write without worrying about day-to-day or writerly support to help you focus, we are slowly building our options…
Our next offerings include:
Billabong Retreat (Sydney)
Sept 11 – 16 (3 day or 5 day stays available)
At Billabong Retreat, you get the beauty of the remote Aussie bush without travelling far at all.
Included in the pricing: accommodation, delicious organic meals, all drinks and snacks as well as optional yoga twice/day.
You can also add writing support with me: a package that includes 1 hour-long session during your retreat and then an hour-long follow up session to keep up your motivation and momentum once you return home. (Writing support AUD $250pp)
Not only will you love the serene location, but it will help keep your writerly focus with minimal wifi (say goodbye to the social media vortex) – perfect!
Booking is direct with Billabong Retreat and you can select the pricing that works for your budget (packages from AUD $975pp)
