Enjoy the supportive company of women who want to explore their truth and stretch their creative muscles through the craft of writing.

Generate new ideas, break through blocks, and write like you’ve never written before!

$2900 All-inclusive. Private accommodations in luxury villa. Small group 10-12.

Kathryn’s well planned days unfolded seamlessly against a backdrop of openness and trust. Her creative writing prompts lead me to new discoveries and insights into my writing. Add to all this, comfortable beds, excellent meals, and enlightening excursions and you will have a week to treasure.

I feel like I had the opportunity to test-drive each building block of storytelling as it was presented. We focused on something specific and then gave it a try. The instruction, writing, and sharing were perfectly balanced. Kathryn promised we would write a lot and she wasn’t kidding, I was amazed at how much I produced, and left feeling so inspired.
