Escape to the Mountains to Write

May 3 – 6, 2018     in Kananaskis, Alberta

You have a book inside of you.

You’ve been trying to write this book for two years (or more).
You might even have a first chapter that you’ve rewritten a thousand times.

You have an idea of what you want to say, you want to make a difference in the world but time, and resistance, and overwhelm, and insecurity, and uncertainty is getting in the way.

You own a business and your business pulls you in a million different directions and you rationalize avoiding your book because you’re working with paying customers, yet you know that your book is the very things that will bring you more paying customers.

You need a writing retreat.

You need to go away for a couple of days where you have no distractions and you have somebody to shepherd you on the process of first getting really clear on your book outline and starting you on the first step.

The first step is not writing your whole book in a weekend, the first step is writing your outline and your first two chapters. Once you have the outline you have the roadmap and you know exactly where to go. Once you’ve written the first two chapters you have found your voice and the flavor of the story.

Now you have me, Tammy Plunkett, the incessant writing coach to hold you accountable.

As a business owner, you do not miss deadlines, you do the work.
Are you ready? Are you ready to come write with me?
Let’s get this done.


Nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and away from high tourist traffic, you will be surrounded by the beautiful inspiration of nature.

How the Weekend Will Unfold

You will be welcomed on Thursday evening with a wine reception where we will get familiarized with the environment and each other.

On Friday and Saturday mornings, we meet for breakfast in the conference room and Tammy kick’s off the day with guidance for your writing ending in a guided meditation. You are then off to write.

We meet back again for lunch and a workshop. In the afternoons, you are free to write and play in the mountains for the afternoon.  You will have the choice of six on-site restaurants for dinner on your own or with new friends.

We meet on Sunday for breakfast and we have a closing ceremony after lunch.
