What relationships are driving you to the page?

Join writer & essayist Christie Tate, author of the New York Times Bestselling memoir, ‘Group’ for a four day writing retreat in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Canada, where we will explore the relationships that are calling us to the page.

The beating heart of any beloved story is the relationships; they drive the action on the page as they drive us in our lives. In this workshop we will explore the relationships that are calling us to the page. Together we will excavate the compelling scenes and critical turning points of the relationships that have helped shape who we are and what we want. To dig into the glorious complexity of our most intimate relationships, we will do a series of generative exercises and examine the work of some of our favorite writers.

Enjoy 5 nights accommodation at the secluded Juniper Hotel in Banff, a Forest Bathing experience with Forest Fix Canada, nourishing food, trips into the wilderness & daily writing workshops, as well as time to rest, reflect & reconnect to self.
