Costa Rica Writing Retreat

Writing Retreats in Costa Rica


Join us at Las Cascadas, a lovely rainforest hotel by the beach in Costa Rica, for a week-long creative writing retreat in January 2025.

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.

Our retreats conclude with a celebratory evenig during which writers are invited to share their work with the group.

The fee quoted below covers all writing workshops and activities. The accommodation fee to the hotel, and the flight, are paid separately.
