TOUR OF FAR North Queensland

TOUR OF FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND!

Queensland!

Leaving tomorrow for my grand adventure traveling though far North Queensland running Healing Power of Story workshops for the fabulous Queensland Writers Centre.

Telling our Stories to the WORLD! I am passionate about Queensland writers and Queensland stories and looking forward to meeting many new writers in the far flung reaches of our enormous and beautiful state.

My father’s family were early settlers in Innisfail and I spent many happy days running wild on the family cane farm and exploring the glorious tropical beaches and freezing cold waterfalls. I love it up there. I’ve travelled far and wide trying to find beauty that equals it. Happy to report – I never have.

Relax and Write In Paradise!

Put yourself in this picture! Escape the winter blues and join me and other like-minded women writers on beautiful Magnetic Island, off the coast from Townsville in North Queensland.

As the world continues to roll with the punches of Covid-19 (who else is feeling a little bruised?), there are still places of retreat and recovery where creativity is valued and time slows down to let you settle deeply into your writing, and yourself.

Come along and join the fun at RELAX AND WRITE IN PARADISE June 25 – 27 2021.

At Amaroo on Mandalay! Yes, a resort! No bunk beds here, but studio apartments with their own kitchenettes and bathrooms, singles, or bigger rooms for those who bring along a writing buddy.

Is your creative spirit crying out from some TLC? It’s been a crazy year, take some time out to cherish yourself and refill your tank.

Join a wonderful supportive group of women in a fun and safe environment discovering just how much some deep relaxation can ignite your imagination and get you writing again. Relax and unwind with gentle morning yoga sessions and get writing with innovative workshops that use yoga, and drama techniques to help move those stories out of your head and onto the page. 

The program includes two yoga sessions, dance night and four creative writing workshops. Whether you’re writing memoir, fiction or screenplays, these sessions cover the basics of character, dialogue and story development, as well as advice on editing and submitting your work. Two nights comfortable, airconditioned accommodation plus delicious vegetarian breakfasts and dinners are all included in the cost.

PRICES START at only $550 twin share!

Come along and join the fun, make new writing buddies and renew your love of writing. Contact me for more info and bookings.

HURRY! Repeat retreaters – or mermaids as they’re better known – have already snapped up a lot of spaces. Places are limited to a maximum of 15, so you get plenty of attention for your projects.

Don’t miss out on this luxury retreat at bargain prices. Contact me now to secure your place!

I am so looking forward to getting up to Magnetic Island and relaxing after the craziness of the last year and a bit. YAY! Not long now.

Early bird prices end tomorrow! DON’T DELAY! You can secure your place with a deposit and pay the rest later.

Hope you can make it 🙂

Lots of love
