Costa Rica Writing Retreat, January 19 - 26, 2025

This writing retreat is a week-long creative writing retreat in January 2025 at Las Cascadas, a lovely rainforest hotel by the beach in Costa Rica hosted by Centauri Arts Writing Retreats.

Our writing workshops take place on the lovely terrace, and feature prompts and techniques applicable to writers interested in memoir, short fiction, plays, poetry and novels. Beginning writers are welcome, as well as writers with experience.

We accept only a small number of participants (7-10 writers per retreat) so we can easily adapt to meet your needs. Each writing retreat includes 6 workshops of 2-3 hours in length, mostly held in the mornings. Workshops may focus on plot, character, sources of inspiration, descriptive writing, poetry, editing strategies and the business of writing. Workshops feature all-new content each time we run a retreat, so many writers join us year after year.

Tuscany Writing Retreat, May 10 - 17, 2025 OR May 18 - 24, 2025

Join Kathryn Kay and a small group of like-minded women writers for a magical week in the heart of Italy. Together, we’ll explore the region, share our words, and grow as writers. You won’t just bring home a new passport stamp; you’ll return with a new body of work, attainable next-steps, and a heart bursting with newfound inspiration.

What could be better for your writing than getting away from the stresses of everyday life and writing to your heart’s content? This retreat welcomes women writers of all ages, genres, and levels of experience.

Each morning, we will explore the craft of writing through plot, dialogue, characterization, imagery, and more. As you become curious about story ideas, inspirations, and blocks. As a reward for your hard work, you will enjoy a buffet lunch on one of the villa’s terraces. Your afternoon will either be free to do as you please, relax/write/explore, or a professionally guided excursion will be scheduled.

Additional writing sessions will be scheduled on afternoons without excursions and Kathryn will schedule a private consultation with you to discuss your work on one of your free afternoons. The retreat also includes a second consultation via phone with Kathryn at some point post-retreat.
