The 5th Annual Paradise Writers' Retreat is scheduled for October 16-23, 2018...

On the High Seas!

We'll be sailing the Mediterranean with Star Clippers Cruises :)

We depart on October 16th from the port of Piraeus in Greece on board the Star Flyer. For 7 glorious days we'll sail the Med to the Greek islands of Hydra, Monemvasia and Pilos, the Sicilian island of Syracuse and the Maltese islands of Goza and Valletta. What better inspiration than watching the wind fill the sails, inhaling the salt air and immersing yourself in the ancient history and quaint towns and villages of each island stop? 

During the retreat you'll enjoy morning yoga on the deck, daily writing workshops including sharing and critique, solitary writing time and shore excursions (guided or on your own), where you can write away in a little seaside café or under a tree on a hill overlooking the town.

Workshops & Retreats

We offer practical, hands-on workshops that give you the nuts 'n bolts to finish your work-in-progress (WIP), take on the self-publishing challenge or to help you understand the business of being an indie author.

We also mentor authors one-on-one, guiding them through the book writing process.  In addition, we conduct writing retreats that provide a much-needed escape, where there are no distractions, lots of inspirational exercises in idyllic surroundings joined by other writers with the same goal - finally getting that work in progress done!
