Luxury Retreat For WritersAll-Inclusive | Mentorship and Coaching | Gourmet Meals | Drinks Included
Feb 5-9, 2023
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.
What Makes This Retreat Different:
Not your typical all-inclusive. Have you ever been to one of those all-inclusive vacation spots with too many people, mass-produced food, and watered-down drinks? This isn’t that. Writers Camp includes world-class margaritas (or whatever your drink of choice may be), gourmet food, and a unique, private setting with killer views. The entire resort will be dedicated to Writers Camp.
Egos are checked at the door. If you don’t have an MFA… or if you do… great. Whether you’ve published many books or are just starting out… great. Writers Camp is not about keeping score, flaunting accolades, or comparing sales data. We all have challenges and we all need a time out. Your only competition at Writers Camp is you. We’ll help you get out of your own way, find inspiration, and tap into your inner drive.
No one is lost in the crowd. Writers Camp accommodates a maximum of 20 writers. Before you arrive, we learn about your writing, your goals, and the challenges you face. The experience is tailored to address your specific situation and provide you with a clear roadmap for moving forward.
Everyone has a voice. You’ll have an opportunity to share your work at our nightly bonfires. Or not, it’s up to you. But we’re confident that you’ll find Writers Camp to be a safe and encouraging environment.
Space is limited. Secure your spot.

What Others Are Saying About “Writers Camp”
“Inspirational instruction where I could unplug, focus and listen to my inner writer’s voice. Thank you Amanda Turner for organizing and leading the Summer’s Writer’s Camp in June of 2021. The location at Pachamama Mexico in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico was the perfect venue for a writer such as myself, who has been writing all my professional career for others and is in the process of shifting my writing to books, blogs and freelance travel writing. Your insight, guidance and willingness to share your knowledge of publishing and writing has helped me focus and take successful next steps. I’ll be attending your next writer’s retreat!”
“I’m so grateful I could attend Writers Camp – I really loved the schedule, which was an ideal mix of activities and rest. The setting was idyllic, the food (and drinks!) amazing, and the hospitality perfect. I felt like I reclaimed my identity as a writer and made valuable connections with like-minded folks. I was so happy to just have dedicated writing time, too.”
“I went to Mexico with Amanda ‘AK’ Turner and the merry band she had assembled and all my expectations were exceeded. There was opportunity, inspiration, instruction and motivation and I was advantaged by it and will be forever grateful and changed by the experience. Perhaps it should not be called a writer’s retreat, but a more of a reconnaissance to prepare for the battle charge ahead.”
“Writing retreat with Amanda was one of those experiences that all my senses will remember for a long time. Every little detail was thought through, from the unique location and accommodations to food and daily writing workshops. Their down-to-earth teamwork made us all feel inspired to share our stories. It was a pleasure to learn many professional tips and tricks and receive one-on-one support. I only wish it had lasted longer. Thank you so much for making this happen!”
“The first writing retreat I ever went to was wonderful, informative, creative, and relaxing. It was great to meet others with the same interests and share not only writing but our different lives. Getting feed back was a confidence builder. Others were honest and the constructive criticism was very welcome! I loved listening to the writings of others and also their life experiences. It would be hard to get that special interaction with others in a two hour class or meeting. Staying together for a few days in a great setting gave a new angle to my life. Thanks Amanda! I hope to be able to come to another of your retreats!!”
“I had the most spectacular time at the Writer’s Retreat. Every meal is a unique culinary experience and not your typical all inclusive resort food. The beverages were delightful, especially the authentic margaritas served Todos Santos style (strong). Amanda is an excellent tour guide navigating us through the vibrant streets of Todos Santos. More importantly, she is a great teacher. I loved getting to know her and being able to learn from such a warm, approachable and accomplished writer.”

About Your Host
Amanda Turner writes as AK Turner and is the New York Times bestselling author of This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store and Vagabonding with Kids, among others. She published seven books in seven years, winning numerous awards along the way. She also works one-on-one with clients as a Writing Coach and Publishing Consultant. (Note: There is no upselling at Writers Camp).
While all of that might sound really fancy, Amanda also understands that when it comes down to it, writing is about connecting with a reader. Writers Camp is not about getting caught up in someone else’s definition of success. As a writer, your only competition – the only one standing in your way – is you.
When we first visited Pachamama, it seemed we’d stumbled upon the ideal location for a Writers Retreat. From there we developed Writers Camp, a 5-day, 4-night retreat filled with just the right amount of writing, activities, mentoring and experiences, and just the right amount of downtime. Not to mention food and drink that will knock your flip-flops off. (You probably won’t be wearing socks).
If this sounds like it might be right for you, secure your spot. We only have 14 spots available.
