Winter Writing Retreat in the Tropics February 22 – March 1, 2020
Imagine spending hours every day in your own private cabana on a writing retreat next to a lake surrounded by a lush jungle full of tropical birds.
I’ve finally found the perfect place to get away from distractions, relax, and FOCUS on writing. I’d like to invite you along!
El Remate is located next to a clear, spring-fed lake near the Mayan archeological site of Tikal in northeastern Guatemala. After my first visit here on a personal writing retreat in 2018, I fell in love with the place.
Consider this your invitation.
Join me in this lovely village of friendly people, quaint writing cottages, a jungle nature preserve, and a variety of delectable thatch-roofed restaurants along the lake. That, and blessed quiet.
Who would love this retreat?
You might be trying to complete a book project, or just starting out; both are okay. You might want to explore “Writing from the Subconscious” or “Writing In Nature.” Regardless of your genre — poetry, non-fiction, memoir, fiction, or exploratory freewriting — this retreat will be great for you.

Hours of writing time in your own cottage by a beautiful spring-fed lake
Individual coaching daily from a professional writing teacher and award-winning author
