Travel Writing Retreats

Part mastermind retreat and part FAM trip, our travel writing retreats are open to travel writers and bloggers in search of bigger and better opportunities.

While you explore an exciting location and learn about the local culture, you’ll also be honing your craft with expert coaches. In addition to the typical activities and dining you find on FAM trips, you’ll also have group and 1:1 coaching to help you improve your pitching, discover new outlets, improve your craft and grow your business as a freelance travel writer or travel blogger.
