Have you been thinking about writing a book?  Are you ready to stop wanting, start writing?

Sam knows from experience that taking a weekend to talk out your book, clarify your goals, share your work and receive time-saving tips that can save you money and grief –all in the midst of a supportive, focused group of people –is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.

In addition to being the Executive Director of the world-renowned Maui Writers Conference for 17 years, I’ve organized and hosted writing retreats around the world -overlooking lakes, beaches (and icebergs!) in Alaska, Fiji, California, Mexico, Virginia and Hawaii. 

Every single time, participants told me it was the key to getting their book(s) out of their head and into the world –and the best investment they’ve even made in their writing career.

Wherever you are in the process, you’ll love our “rising tide raising all writers” weekend where you get your questions answered, your project crystallized, and your priorities met.I purposefully keep our group small –8 people max –so you each get a spotlight to focus on what you care most about so the weekend is sure to be everything you want –and more. Here are our logistics:  

“Magic unfolds when you write in community.”
— Sam Horn
