Linda Sivertsen Writer's Retreats

Writing Retreats with Linda Sivertsen’s

February, March, May, June, July, August, September, October, or November

Honor your voice. Infuse your writing. Sell your book. Five days with Linda Sivertsen can turn your literary cravings into fully-fledged book concepts, connections to big agents, and signed publishing contracts. Yup. It works!

Spend this retreat working on your book proposal, novel, non-fiction manuscript, memoir—whatever piece of writing is longing to be born. With a max of five women at each retreat, it’s an inti­mate, infinitely inspiring week of sisterhood & synchronicity—where new books emerge, old books get elevated, and psychic revelations rumble forth... all without getting out of your PJs (if you so desire…).

Come with merely a few ideas or a belly full of them, nothing but a title and a gut feeling to just get started, or two full manuscripts. Shortcut your process from the start of your writing process or infuse a tried and true discipline for writing with new energy. Either way, you’ll eat your favorite foods (served to your likes + needs) in this “think tank” of the most loving order.

This brain-trust-by-the-sea is about being cozy and renewed, with nothing but writing, brainstorming, pampering, camaraderie, gut laughs, and ocean ions to help get your book up, out, and onto bookstore and home library shelves around the world.

Retreats are in a gorgeous 3-story estate home overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Carmel-by-the-Sea.  From beachside walks at daybreak, to brainstorming sessions fueled by regional wine & artisanal creations served to you by a private chef, to editing & feedback rounds by the pine-burning fireplace, this is every writer’s creative fantasy. You will benefit by arriving a few days early and staying a few days after your retreat to soak up the magic of Carmel and continue working on your masterpiece.  Linda’s clients, from all over the world, love staying at The Vagabond’s House!  

Writing retreats are scheduled about nine times a year, starting on Monday afternoon and ending Friday at noon.  These retreats fill up quickly. For a full schedule of retreats, or to reserve a spot in an upcoming retreat, visit:
