Join like-minded women in a fun and supportive 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 to help move those stories out of your head and onto the page.
“I feel transformed, as a writer and as a human being.”
Bianca Millroy – participant NANOWRIMO retreat 2019
The program includes two yoga sessions, three inspiring writing workshops covering the basics of self editing and redrafting, plus advice on editing and submitting your work. Two nights single accommodation plus delicious vegetarian meals, morning and afternoon teas and a special dance night are included.
“The fully-catered retreat environment was comfortable and stress-free. Edwina and her team create an atmosphere that encourages, motivates and inspires.”
Gay Liddington – participant NANOWRIMO retreat 2019
High in the hills behind the Gold Coast at the wonderful Theosophical Society Retreat Centre, this camp is best for more experienced writers with a first draft of a full-length project either completed or underway. Workshops focus on self editing and redrafting. Individual feedback sessions are available and workshops are heavily craft focused, theory based and practical exploring publishing options. Everyone gets their own room at this one! Fabulous little nun rooms with desks.

Come along and join our group of happy campers! Treat yourself to a blissful writing retreat this new year. After the roller coaster ride of 2020 we all need some time out!
Better yet – get someone else to give you a wonderful present you’ll really enjoy.
You deserve some time and space for just you and your writing.
Come along and join our group of happy campers!
Please do get in touch if you’re struggling financially and we’ll work something out so you can come too. Helena and I first started these retreats because we couldn’t afford to go to any of the fancy ones we saw advertised, so the accommodation isn’t posh, but the workshops and people are first class! (We like to think so anyway)

THE HEALING POWER OF STORY IN FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND! JULY 2021
I’m super excited to announce my upcoming tour of Far North Queensland.I first toured with these Healing Power of Story workshops for Micah Projects early last year just before Covid struck.
Now the Queensland Writers Centre is sending me on an extensive tour to even more far flung and adventurous destinations to get the message out to writers and readers in remote communities in Queensland.
We start with workshops in Cairns, on the 3rd July, then Port Douglass on the 4th, Atherton on the 6th, and my old home town Innisfail on the 7th. YAY! Then out to Georgetown to where the dinosaurs once roamed, then across to the gulf to Normanton on the 11th, Karumba on the 12th, then onto Mt Isa, Julia Creek, Cloncurry. Hughenden, Charters Towers and Townsville. PHEW! A grand adventure indeed 🙂
I’m really looking forward to meeting writers who are far from any community of like minds and connecting them in with resources and writing buddies.Get in touch if I’m heading your way!
