MESSAGES IN THE DARK
8-Week Online Writing Retreat
Next Session Begins September 6, 2021
Join a small group of magical writers and the Book Witch
to weave the wild unknown
into your written words.
Writer's Quest is for the spiritual word weaver,
journal writer or writer of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry who is looking for the space, time, energy and support to explore the wild unknown within and pull the golden threads into this reality.
If you are ready to blow your heart wide open with your written words and reveal the unknown, unreachable aspect of your wild soul, this is your writer’s adventure.
WRITING ALONE IS HARD.
COME WRITE WITH MAGICAL FRIENDS.
Do you believe:
your life is a wildly spiritual journey where you find glimpses of the Divine in a single leaf or the tiniest snowflake?
your words are the creative expression of truth within?
you can hear the whispers of your wild self in the quiet moments of your life?
If you’re heart is humming, “Yes!” right now, you’ll love this online retreat to find the Messages In The Dark.
This quest is held as sacred ceremony by the Book Witch and intended for aspiring writers of all experience levels for an incredible 8-week retreat where you can dive deep into your wild soul from the comfort and safety of your home.
DEEPEN YOUR PROCESS. STRENGTHEN YOUR VOICE
WHAT TO EXPECT
This online writing retreat will have two sessions (evening and morning) with 4 days and 4 nights. Every Monday, you'll receive instructions, writing prompts + one little action item for you to connect with the messages within while you write that week. The next Quest begins on September 6th. You'll receive an invitation to the classroom August 16th to begin your Quest preparations.
Commitment Ritual last week in August
Begins September 6, 2021
The Quest happens the week of October 18, 2021
Space is limited to 8 participants in each session.
Writer's Quest will be delivered by Email + Zoom.
The material will be housed in a private classroom.
How It Works
The weeks leading up to your Writer’s Quest are designed to provide inspiration, to tap into the writing flow, and connect with your small group of writers. We will work with the magic of the Elements and the words channeling through you from the Wild Unknown with assignments and writing prompts.
Participants will spend 2-hours each week writing and participating in a group Zoom. These community-building sessions will include feedback exchanges, assignment discussion, writing craft talks, magic, and more.
The week prior to the Writer’s Quest, participants will clear their schedules for the following week, as best they can or make plans for an AirBNB during the days of their Writer’s Quest. Each person will meet one-on-one for 45 minutes with the Book Witch prior to their Quest.
The Quest itself will run the week of October 18th. Each participant will choose the 4-days and 4-nights of their Quest during that week.
We'll meet the week following your Quest for an intensive group session and one more 45-minute one-on-one session with the Book Witch for planning next steps including revision, further development, or book creation.
The post-Quest week is designed to provide each participant with one-on-one access to a supportive, professional Book Coach who knows and values their work and can answer any and all questions, from craft to industry and next steps.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"IT WAS AMAZING!! The most helpful writing retreat I've ever done. And the least expensive and most intimate."
"I cannot say enough about how amazing the experience was for me. Heather is an amazing guide, teacher, and witch. I appreciate Writer's Quest beyond what my words can express. I was pushed past the edge to challenge my discomfort in my writing. During the process of Writer's Quest, I grew and realized that I am capable of anything I desire if I do it with energy, intention, hard work, and stay focused on the vision and words on my heart."
"Writer's Quest is a great mix of practical/professional advice about the craft of writing and a heart-based approach to a writing project. It helped me get realistic about what I was doing and how to do it, as well as opening my view about the different ways I could write."
