37 Incredible Writing Retreats to Attend in 2019

37 Incredible Writing Retreats to Attend in 2019

Do you dream of getting away to write, but need some guidance on the next steps for your novel?

Want to meet and work with other writers, but in a more intimate setting than a writing conference?

A writing retreat might be just the ticket.

Whereas writer’s residencies are mostly about working in solitude, and conferences focus on networking and lectures, writing retreats fall somewhere in between.

Most of them are in beautiful locations (where, presumably, your creative juices will flow more easily), and offer a combination of workshops, tours and interaction with a small group of writers.

They’re a great way to combine a vacation with inspiration, networking — and, of course, writing.

They’re often pricey, but some offer scholarships (so always ask!), or you could create your own writing retreat with friends.

And remember: A retreat is an investment in your career, as well as an opportunity to get away. If they’re out of your price range, then perhaps a writing residency would be a better fit. Or, check out this list of grants for writers.

The 37 writing retreats below take place in 2019; they range in price, location and focus — so hopefully you’ll be able to find one that fits your needs. (Hint: Though they’re in order by date, many organizers offer multiple retreats. So if there’s a month that works best for you, command-F to search the page for it.)

Unless otherwise noted, the prices include workshops, shared accommodation, activities and most meals — but not airfare to and from the destination.

If your chosen retreat has already happened, don’t despair; click through to check out next year’s dates, as many of them are annual affairs.

Lastly, I haven’t attended any of the retreats listed, so it’s imperative you do your own research before signing up. Ask to see testimonials or reviews, or search online for blog posts by past participants.

1. Creative Revolution Retreats

Leigh Shulman invites you to choose your own retreat dates — and join her anytime in January or February 2019 in Salta, Argentina.

    UPDATE: Thank you for including our Visual Mindscape Screenwriting Retreat in Malibu as #6 in your blog post above. Several of your readers attended last weekend and loved this mini-retreat with Bill Boyle. Bill will return to mentor screenwriters in more retreats and workshops, including a two-day Visual Mindscape Screenwriting Workshop in Tucson (TBD in July 2016) and a magical screenwriting retreat in the “land of heart’s desire” at a gorgeous historic country house in Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland, October 9-15, 2016. This retreat is already partially booked, and we’re only taking 6-10 screenwriters. Please take a look at the details here: http://www.miaterratours.com/ireland-screenwriting-retreat.html

    What a wonderful selection of amazing retreats/places! I’m actually hosting one in BALI in August 2016: http://soulcuisine.co.nz/writers-retreat-bali-2016/
    I hosted it last year and it was so much fun! Check it out – it’s very reasonable too 🙂

  • Karen says:

    We are based in beautiful Gascony, SW France and run literary retreats for aspiring novelists.

    Although we are a small company we are working with a team of highly professional literary agents, University Creative Writing tutors and published authors who are all widely known in the profession.

    We have two amazing courses coming up in June, run by literary agent Andrew Lownie, author Liz Jensen (whose book ‘The Nineth Life of Louis Drax has been turned into a movie) and Amanda Hodginson published author in 22 languages and fellow at Suffolk University.

    Each course is delivered by different tutors according to genre. See website for details.

    A small company, with a big heart- we offer a unique opportunity to have your book read by a literary agent and to receive a critique on your work in person.

    We would love to welcome you to ‘A Chapter Away’ – a creative break from your everyday lives.



  • jay236 says:

    La Muse in the south of France is definetely one that should be on here in the future! It’s a fantastic place to get away and write, with no set routines and in the most beautiful and idyllic setting. John and Kerri welcome any artist, not just writers and painters and poets. They’ll welcome any kind of art from knitting to baking and cooking to Yoga and hiking . To book your summer getaway, go to http://lamuseinn.com/

    I have another to add! My writer/photographer husband and I are holding two retreats a year, following the success of our first last year.

    Our Cambodia Culinary Travel Writing and Photography Retreats will be on in Siem Reap (our home) in May and September each year. We still have some spots left for May, starting on the 22nd for 10 nights, and September is almost sold out, despite the fact we haven’t even finalised dates yet.

    We have decades of writing experience with a hefty body of work (Delicious, Australian Gourmet Traveller, The Guardian, CNN etc), a successful blog, we’re currently writing a cookbook, and producing a series of long-form narratives and videos on Asian food for an Australian broadcaster. I also have a decade’s experience teaching writing and film at university, industry and vocational levels.

    We’ve got an itinerary crammed with immersive experiences that are aimed to stimulate and inspire – from a moat-side sunset picnic at Angkor Wat to temple scrambles, market walks, cooking classes, street food tours, village visits, and countryside excursions, and a three day trip to Battambang. All activities enable opportunities for participants to get up close and personal and engage with locals. These are all punctuated by workshops and downtime to reflect upon the experiences – and write!

    I note the concern above about prices and we had this feedback last year, so we’ve chosen accommodation with a range of different room types, and therefore a range of different prices, starting from US$1,200 which is pretty incredible considering that includes 10-nights’ accommodation, all meals but two, all classes, tours, activities, and experiences, transport, guides, etc.

    More info on the link and then there’s another link with pics from last year’s tour -> http://grantourismotravels.com/2016/01/28/cambodia-culinary-travel-writing-and-photography-retreat/

  • Tracey says:

    Writers might also be interested in La Muse Writers & Artists Retreat in southern France, where I am now. This is a wonderful and affordable retreat set in a village in the mountains bordering Spain, where writers and artists gather for one, two or three week (or longer) retreats in an 11th Century, 7-bedroom house owned by writers John Fanning and his partner Kerry. It is self-catering and we have the freedom to work at will, but with guidelines for quiet times. I love it here: it keeps me focused, and is inspiring, beautiful and even magical, especially at night under the massive stars. #lamuseinn.com #retreats #France

    I find it extremely hard to construct dreams in writting. However, immaculately tainted English is my birth right. I swear solemnly, I just heard Debra, Suzanne, Liz, Elizabeth talking about some retreats. Just like you all great people out there; oneday perhaps I would be able to send my second language English for retreats.
    My apology, I’m new on the block kind of nervous and sensitive.

    Anyway, hope you all doing fabulous out there. My first twiking, ” is that sound like my first time in blogging experience?”

    With Ireland known as a place of where artists of all kinds find inspiration in both landscape and its mystical nature, we invite those who want to live the Irish experience in a land that time forgot, in probably the most scenic part of Ireland, along the famous ‘Wild Atlantic Way.’
    Ireland Writing retreat takes place in June 26-July 2, 2017. A week-long, creative writing holiday with a difference – scenic walks, fascinating talks and daily practical writing and editing workshops lively, traditional Irish music concerts; archaeological and environmental tours of an awe-inspiring landscape soaked in Celtic legend; tuition in the Gaelic language, as well as Irish ceildhe dancing.

    Hey Susan! Thank you again for including us in this year’s retreat round up! So many of our participants find their ways to Nicaragua and Costa Rica because of this list of yours. We’ve even had a few people who spent a year or more traveling after joining the retreat and then never went back to their old word as they were able to write on the road.

    Always appreciated!
