Author Transformation Alliance

2020 Spring Writing Retreat

Virtual Retreat Ticket

Hey, author!
Although we won't be meeting in-person this year, we can still create an experience that provides creative renewal, opportunities to make new friends, and the restoration of our love for writing.
This writing retreat is a 3-day immersive experience with me, Audrey Hughey, the founder of the Author Transformation Alliance (ATA), and an array of wonderful instructors.
As a virtual retreat ticket holder, you'll receive access to our private retreat group. When the event happens, we'll be going live through Zoom and connecting within the private Facebook group.
What if I can't attend a session live? Each class and creative writing session will be recorded so you can participate when you're able. We want this to be something you can use and reuse as long as you need The replays will be posted in the group. 
What if I want to speak with an instructor after the live class is over? Our instructors are so excited about this retreat and helping other writers that they're going to be available to be tagged in the group for questions and we will have multiple live Q&A sessions in the weeks after the retreat.
Light as a Feather
Our theme is "Light as a Feather," and through that theme, our intention is to help you create an author's life that is wholistically easier, more enjoyable, and filled with freedom.
All of our workshops, activities, and group time will hold this intention and together we'll work on how we can make writing, publishing, marketing, and your day-to-day life as an author easier, more enjoyable, and furthermore fulfilling.
