As attorneys and business owners ourselves, we know it’s damned hard to break away for a few days off. And you just never have time for writing. Now you can do both – nourish your soul, rest your body, feed your mind, and nurture your Creative Spark – all in beautiful, sacred, natural spaces designed for renewal.
We developed the retreat WE want to attend and hope it resonates with you, too. This retreat is for professional women only, because we know how hard it can be to open up in a group of strangers that don't fully understand the challenges we face. We have our own jargon and worries, our own joys and frustrations, and things are just easier when we can settle in with others who are on the same path.
Twice a year, we retreat to a secluded location in a natural setting for four days of inspiration, creative nurturing, quiet mindfulness, and tons of writing.
In the summer, we offer Creativity Staycation Camp, a web-based mini retreat based on the curriculum of our live Creativity Camps.

Who Should Attend?
- Professional women who want to write something other than another boring report.
- Would-be authors in any genre. This is not a genre-specific workshop - it's for ALL people who want to get creative and write! Our attendees have been writing memoir, self-help, YA, romance, murder mystery, and poetry.
- Adventurous spirits who want to try something new, in a welcoming atmosphere.
- Women who have never tried creative writing, in-progress writers who want a fresh start on their project, and anyone who wants time and space to concentrate on writing.
What You Get at Creativity Camp
- 4 days, 3 nights in a rustic, natural setting –it’s like summer camp! We go north in the summer and south in the winter, so we always have the perfect climate for outdoor activities.
- Morning rituals to center and ground your body and awaken your senses.
- Creativity exercises to push your walls down and allow the words to flow. We have years of experience and training in this skillset!
- Daily focused writing time and free time. You’ll work hard and play hard!
- Storytelling and campfire tales, because who doesn’t like a ghost story?
- Outdoor activities, like nature walks, to keep your senses engaged.
- Daily guided meditation to help you greet your muse and open the creative channels.
- Nourishing food. Begin your day with a light breakfast, enjoy mid-morning coffee break, a hearty lunch, afternoon tea, cocktail hour, and a healthy dinner.
- Restful quiet time, to wander, ponder, and (yes you are allowed) nap.
- The freedom (and privacy) to share your work, feedback, and ideas.
- Super talented colleagues who will support you, challenge you, and be your allies.
- Post retreat support via our FB group and subscription services.
