This writer's retreat is more than just you taking time out from your daily pressure and having the space and time to write, you will spend your time honing your craft alongside a New York Times Best Selling Author.

You have the opportunity to explore your project with the guidance of Corinna Bechko. Corinna is a Hugo- and Eisner-nominated New York Times best-selling author who has worked for numerous publishers including DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, BOOM!, IDW and Sideshow on titles such as Star Wars: Legacy, Savage Hulk, Invisible Republic, The Expanse, Avatar: Adapt or Die, Green Lantern: Earth One, The Space Between and several Star Trek short stories. she has also written books for young readers including Smithsonian Dig it: Dinosaurs and Smithsonian 1001 Super Space Facts.

Having one-on-one time as well as group workshops with this writer as she shares her experience and expertise, you will not only learn about your craft but also learn about the professional writing industry.

In addition to the on-site modalities and daily wellness programs like yoga, meditation, and massage, we will enjoy so much more throughout the week. This includes excursions to historical sights, to the beach, and enjoying ‘farm to plate’ on the allotment and with an Albanian cooking class. There will still be plenty of time for relaxing and journaling, swimming in the eco pool, or going on an adventurous hike!

We will make sure you are nourished mind, body, and soul so your creativity can soar!
