Writers-Camp-Todos-Santos-Mexico-2021 Writing Retreat

Attention Writers!  It’s time to unplug and head to Writers Camp. 

Spend 5 days and 4 nights in a creative paradise. 

Writers Camp takes place just outside of the small coastal town of Todos Santos on the Baja Peninsula, nestled at the base of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. You’ll stay at Pachamama, the most unique, boutique, luxury glamping resort in Mexico. 

Engage in writing exercises with a New York Times bestselling author, learn about the craft of writing and publishing avenues, and share your work with your fellow campers around a nightly bonfire. 

Writers Camp is not all about work. This immersive, all-inclusive experience includes everything from gourmet meals and margaritas to massages on the beach. Simply arrive at the San Jose del Cabo airport on Feb 5th. We’ll meet you at the airport and take care of the rest. 

Writers Camp is for both aspiring writers and established authors alike, though space is extremely limited.
