Retreats, Classes, and Events


Is there a project that’s been tugging at your heart?

Maybe it’s a book you’d love to write, a podcast, a screenplay, or a collection of love letters and advice for your kids.

Maybe it’s a business project, like sprucing up your website, writing your e-newsletter, or developing a program for your clients.

Or maybe you’re craving some quiet time with absolutely nothing to do. Time to breathe, slow down, and think deeply about your priorities for the next few years of your life.

Come spend 7 days on the Big Island of Hawaii. Give yourself the gift of time and space. No distractions. No obligations. Nothing pulling at your attention.

At this retreat, you’ll have writing classes, yoga classes, a beautiful bedroom with lots of privacy, healthy meals, a relaxing massage, trips to visit black sand beaches and waterfalls, and plenty of free time to lounge in a hammock, read, write, or work on a project.

You’ll leave this retreat feeling strong, recharged, and inspired.

Upcoming retreat dates: June 17-24, 2019 and January 6-13, 2020

A “tiny book” is a very short book. Typically 30-80 pages. For instance, a tiny book of love letters for your partner. A tiny book of family recipes. A tiny book filled with advice for your kids. A tiny book for your clients. A tiny book for teenagers. A tiny book for new parents.

What kind of tiny book would you love to create?

Join Lindsey Smith (Founder of One Idea Press and author of Eat Your Feelings and Hear Me Roar) and Alexandra Franzen (Founder of the Tiny Press and author of So This Is the End and You’re Going to Survive) for The Tiny Book Workshop.

Learn how to outline your book, how to choose a title, how to get unstuck and get the words flowing, and how to get your book printed…so you can experience the thrill of holding the finished book in your hands!
