Writing From The Heart

Online Retreat

January 27 to 31, 2021

Retreat Leader

Marie Maccagno, M.A., Author and Writing Guide

Craft Your Compelling Story

Envision connecting with those stories you've been longing to tell and getting them on paper at last. Deep inside, you know you have powerful words to share, yet something has been holding you back. This is your opportunity to join a circle of support, writing and celebrating your words with ease.

Our Writing From the Heart virtual retreat provides the dedicated space and support you need to develop your ideas, in your unique voice. I invite you to honour your strong desire to play with words in a perfect setting, to gather and work with your notebooks filled with story fragments. Whatever stage you are at with your writing project, this retreat is a time to focus on nourishing your creative vision.

You will leave with a deeper connection to your writing voice and clear practices that enable powerful words to show up on the page. You will know, deep in your bones, that your words matter; your voice matters. Best of all, you will leave with unforgettable memories, connections with other creative spirits, and the motivation and confidence to continue your writing journey. Receive the gift of time and creative support by saying yes to this retreat!

This is your time!

What my clients are saying...

Marie effectively creates a culture of trust, fun and deep listening. Here are some testimonials from past retreats:

“The biggest impact of this retreat is increased confidence in my writing. For someone, anyone, who has even a glimmer that writing something, anything, would be welcome in their lives, I heartily encourage them to join a Retreat with Marie.”

“Wow! Adventures in Writing helped me find new breath in mid-project. This retreat focused on both the craft and heart of writing, and modeled valuable strategies I could use later.”
PF, Author, Lead Learning Developer

“The deep listening, carefully structured feedback, and attention to both individual and group needs, gave me the confidence to continue mining my story each day. Marie’s experience as a writer and facilitator is masterful.”

When you learn to hear the beauty of your words, you are learning to love yourself and your life.
