But how?

Are you ready for a Tropical Breakthrough? (TWO SPOTS LEFT)

Have you felt stuck in your writing?
Have you lost your creative spark? 
Are you missing your creative community?

Are you longing for a fresh perspective, an adventure to energize your spirit?
A creative reset that takes your writing to the next level?

Just this once would you like to say yes to yourself and your art

Tropical Breakthrough:
Restore, Renew, and Recommit to Your Writing

in COSTA RICA! 
with Kathy Fish and Nancy Stohlman

February 4-10, 2022

Dear Friends–

Over the last 18 months we’ve all learned so much about what really matters–family, health, happiness. We’ve learned we can’t take the future for granted. 

And whether you’ve been struggling to create in the face of so much uncertainty or have been flooded with strange new ideas, we’ve also gained a true appreciation for the healing, inspiring, vision-casting power of our art. 

But we are no good to anyone–including our writing–if we don’t first take care of the creative instrument: ourselves.

Join us February 4-10, 2022, as we leave the cold winter behind and journey to our own private jungle sanctuary for a breakthrough week of inspiration, creation, and transformation. 

What if you could take care of yourself, go deep into your writing, and say yes to yourself after this long year?

What if you could work with your colleagues and mentors, taking new risks with your art? 

What if you could hug your writing community again?

And what if you could do all this in beautiful COSTA RICA in the middle of winter?

What if you just need a little jolt of inspiration, some radical self-care, and a little adventure to nourish your creative heart?

Then you are going to want to find out more!

But don’t delay. There are TWO cabinas left and one of them might have your name on it! We will consider applications in the order we receive then, so if this is for you: don’t wait!

We can’t wait to travel with you!

Love,

Nancy and Kathy 


P.S. See you inside.
