THE VERY FIRST
Your first step : Fill out this survey to get signed up for a video chat with Samantha Davidson and myself to get all the details!!
What is a writer’s getaway you may ask?
The Fearless Writer’s Mountain Getaway, is an amalgamation of everything that Sam and myself, would want if we could disappear for a week to focus on our passions.
It’s the cool mountain air. It’s cozy, bundled up writing in front of a fire, or with the most spectacular views. It’s finding inspiration in the ambiance of a babbling brook, or the whisper of wind through the trees. It’s being surrounded by like-minded, passionate writers to share in this journey with.
So, we have found the most irresistible location to host our very first retreat - the cabin we're staying in is worth 3 Million.... no big deal tho.
Nestled in the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, The Fearless Writer’s Mountain Getaway is talking place in Canmore, Alberta.
What is a writer’s getaway without a little guidance to help in your journey?
No matter what stage you are in the writing process, there’s always more to learn. During your week in the amazing lodge we’ve booked, we’ve planned several group sessions to help focus your mind, center your spirit, and improve your writing.
From group critique sessions, to meditation and journaling exercises, we have something planned for every single day, to help make your writing stronger, your routines structured, and your brand on point.
You’ll walk away with a specifically designed workbook, that you’ll use throughout the week, and have to take home with you, and continue the habits you learn, when you go back to your daily life.
Our goal is for you to go home, refreshed, driven, and ready to take on your writing, with a renewed sense of balance, a clear vision, and the tools you need to find success.
MEET OUR GUEST SPEAKERS
Samantha and I, are only two people. Our experience in writing, our passion and our talents can only take us so far, and teach you so much. This is why, Sam and I have a lineup of some pretty spectacular guests.
We’ve invited a handful amazing guest speakers to come and join us for an intimate discussion and dinner, where you get to interact with published, and accomplished authors who have been through this entire process.
Curious about who we’ve locked down? Well that’s going to have to wait for now. Our guests are top secret, but for the exclusive 10 talented writers who join us, we will be revealing clues between now and the event.
Not only have we hand selected a group of authors that we know are going to inspire and motivate you, but we’ve left a few spots open to cater specifically to the group of writers joining us.
When we know exactly who will be coming on the getaway, we will be solidifying the last guests, specifically in the genre, and category of our writers, so that you have the opportunity to discuss specifics about your writing process with those who have already found success in the industry.
CREATING A COMMUNITY
After attending a writers retreat - When Words Collide - last year, I knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do... and upon realizing a few years ago that #CampNaNoWriMo was actually not a fun writer's summer camp - I knew I wanted to host a Writer's retreat.
The Fearless Writer’s Mountain Getaway was designed around everything Sam and myself would want in an event like this. We wanted to create a atmosphere of acceptance, and positivity. We wanted somewhere that writers could come, be comfortable, be at ease, and be free to just create. We wanted to create a community where we felt comfortable to share our work, and critique other’s stories. We wanted to have time to write, socialize, explore, and bond - all while being in a location that inspired us.
You can expect all of this - and more - from our getaway.
The Fearless Writer’s Mountain Getaway is a full 7 day event, where all accommodations, food, and transportation is included in the price. We have special guest appearances, seminars, writing events, and some extra special surprises included for the exclusive 10 writers who lock in a spot.
Because we are going to be in the heart of the amazing Canadian Rocky Mountains, we can’t expect you to be stuck inside, so we have planned three amazing tours, all included in the price of the getaway. Growing up in Western Canada, we certainly have explored a lot over the years, and we’re going to share the absolute best of the best with all of you. Get your cameras ready, because you are not going to want to miss this!
And the last of what we’re going to give away (there’s so much more that we want to surprise you with!) is an opportunity to have your author headshots done while in one of this worlds most beautiful on-location sites.
We have hired a professional photographer to join us, so that when you go home, not only will you have an amazing week to look back on, a new group of supporters behind you, and some new habits and techniques to improve your writing, but you’ll have a selection of beautiful headshots to select from for your back cover bio!
WHEN DOES IT ALL TAKE PLACE?
Picture this 🏔
Cool, crisp, clean air.
Leaves turning to golden yellows and ravishing reds.
Snow capped mountain tops.
Pumpkin spice lattes and baked apple pie
(ok, the baking is going to have to be on me, because you don’t want Sam's attempts at baking!)
You probably guessed it.
