Join Tammy in Corfu | Writing Retreat 2018

Wishing for somewhere warm?

Where you will write with women just like you?

All you need to do is arrive and Tammy and Elena our Greek guide will take care of everything!

Tammy Coia is bringing a group of women back to Corfu, Greece for one of the most spectacular retreats you could imagine.  Elena was born in Corfu and has strong ties and affection for her beloved country.  You will get to tour the land with a local as she shares her love for her homeland.  Elena has come back home to Corfu in 2016 after spending 15 years living in Bangkok.  While living in Thailand, Elena created and managed 7 very popular and successful Greek restaurants!  You’ll find she is a woman who gets things done and knows everyone in town.

Elena and her brother now own Olive Retreats on the island of Corfu.  Last year the women I brought to the workshop were the very first guests to enjoy the villas!  Elena is a go-getter and a true entrepreneur at heart.

We will arrive at her villas to spend 6 nights and 7 days being pampered by Elena.  The weather is perfect in May (65-75 degrees).  This is an opportunity to experience Corfu like no other, through a local’s eyes.

I have reserved all of Elena’s available rooms for (2) week-long retreats.  You can choose the first week or the second week depending on availability.  I will be teaching all new workshops for the week.  

Each week we will have between 5 – 8 writers, so you will get your own personalized individual attention.  We have 2 Girlfriend Rooms available outfitted with twin beds, if you and a friend would like to come and share a room.  

If you would like to be one of the few writers to enjoy this intimate retreat with a personal local tour guide at our disposal, all inclusive and in an incredibly beautiful place, send me an email at thememoircoach@gmail.com or call 760-989-2232.

Let me know what kind of a room you would like to hold and which week.  Then mail in a check for $500 as a deposit.

I am very excited about this upcoming retreat and promise to make it the best yet!

If you have never been to one of Tammy Coia’s Retreats, let me tell you why they are unique!

  • I teach you to tell your story
  • I workshop your piece and customize the retreat to your needs (take advantage of free one on one time)
  • I inspire you to dig deeper, uncover your story, tell your truth
  • Together we reinvent, we create, we encourage without judgement
  • We grow and leave with a bit more passion
  • We find a certain magic somewhere around the third day
  • I love what I do and I want to share my love of writing, women and travel with you!

 

Where:

I have traveled to Greece several times and if you have too, then you know about the beauty of the people and the place.  Corfu is a destination for many reasons.  Corfu is among the most beautiful and popular islands of the country.  Due to its strong historical connection with Europe, this was among the first Greek islands to open to tourism.  Located on the Northwestern side of the country, Corfu has a cosmopolitan feeling combined with a special traditional character.  We will be staying near the village of Acharavi on the North side of the island with many taverns and café’s.  Elena will pick each for us with a local’s eye.  Apart from the wonderful beaches, the highlight of the island is the Old Town with the characteristic Venetian style and we’ll make sure to see many wonderful spots.  

 

Please note:

Cancellations:

Refunds (minus a non-refundable deposit of 10%) are available at 75% up to 90 days in advance of the retreat, 50% up to 60 days in advance and 25% up to 30 days in advance.  No refunds are possible after May 1, 2018 – no exceptions.  Travel insurance is highly recommended.

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
