In my 20 years working as a multiple best-selling author, I’ve visited and hosted many creative writing retreats. Each time, I’ve developed a new nuance within my writing, which is one reason writing retreats have become part of my ‘Inspiration Toolkit’.

Therefore, I’m excited to tell you that the team at Luxury Writing Retreats have expanded our horizons to the lush tropics of Phu Quoc, Vietnam, introducing a writing sanctuary on the stunning Gulf of Thailand. We are absolutely thrilled!

Why Should You Consider a Creative Writing Retreat?

We are all pulled in multiple directions by life’s demands—juggling roles as spouses, parents, professionals, and more. Joining our creative writing retreat in Phu Quoc, Vietnam will enable you to fully embrace your identity as ‘A Writer’ in the company of like-minded people. By balancing solo writing time, collaborative creativity, and the camaraderie of a vibrant community, our retreats offer a blend of experiences, including immersion in a new cultural environment.

A Day in the Life of a Creative Writing Retreat

Imagine starting the day with a leisurely breakfast, optional yoga, and/or meditation before participating in workshops appropriate for writers of all experience levels and genres. Afternoons provide uninterrupted writing time in inspiring locations or the option to join sightseeing excursions.

Delicious, shared meals encourage connections, and as your resident writing instructor, I provide in-depth, individualised support. As the week concludes, participants share their writing, celebrating the collective achievement of a dedicated week of creative pursuit.

Personal Growth Through Creative Writing Retreats

For me, as a full-time, professional writer, retreats are not just a luxury; they are a necessity. I need a change of scene for the creative juices! Retreats have served as the crucible for significant portions of my books, allowing deep immersion into my writing for hours and days at a time. The satisfaction of returning home with substantial progress on a novel, memoir, or a fresh collection of poems is unparalleled.
