YOUR WEEK IN COSTA RICA
Over the course of the week, The Right Place to Write facilitators will offer small group workshops structured to guide and support you on your writing and publishing journey. You will also receive a one-on-one consultation with a writing coach, editor, and publisher, plus lots of personal time to write your masterpiece! In addition, participants will have several opportunities to explore Costa Rica’s natural beauty with two guided excursions, some fun at the beach and tourist shopping! Did we mention the menu? Our villa chef will prepare custom designed meals for the group’s food preferences and/or sensitivities.
