Pat at the Corfu Writing RetreatHaving just returned from a wonderful trip to Tammy’s Corfu Island women’s writing retreat, I feel renewed and on the right track to finish my memoir. The insights, lessons, and friendship that Tammy offers is unique and special. The women I met at this retreat inspired and encouraged me to complete my memoir.

I also met new friends, Greek, Thai, and well-traveled adventurous women who were confident, empathetic, and honest. This retreat helped me to come out of my little shell and be more confident in my writing. The environment created around writing was comfortable, fun, encouraging, and genuine. I have been to many of Tammy’s retreats, but this one was one of the best. Tammy has the ability to bring together the right group of women on these retreats, almost like a support group dedicated to writing. She always has a new perspective and ideas for teaching writing using examples, readings, writings, and she coaches you one on one to bring out the best in your writing. She truly loves what she is doing and it shows. If you have a chance to attend one of her retreats, you will come away a changed person. I have a new confidence in my writing and many new friends.

A happy camper,

Erika at the Corfu Writing RetreatThe TLC writing retreat in Corfu (2019) was fantastic. Tammy is intuitive and caring, and her unique combination of knowledge, training, and support inspired and motivated me. I am not a professional writer, but the coaching and feedback that she provided made me see possibilities that I hadn’t thought of before. In addition to all of this, Tammy and our host, Elena, a native Corfiot, took us to great restaurants and to some little-known and out-of-the-way sights and unique experiences. That combined with the magical surroundings of Corfu, and the camaraderie of interesting and kind women, made this an experience I will never forget. Thank you, Tammy! You are the best.

Marcia at the Corfu Writing RetreatLoved all seven days we spent together. Deep exploration about inner experiences that will unlock new rooms to engage and write in. Years of therapy released into a breath. Thank you Tammy for showing us how simple it can be to write from the heart, full throttle. I’ve reignited my passion to tell the stories that need sharing, honestly and fearlessly. Well, there still might be some fear, but I’m putting it all out there, no matter what! And, Greece served as such a solid background, home of the word.

Please spread the word about my writing workshops — the best form of advertising is always from one friend to another! Feel free to share my website to friends who may want to write their memoir. Introduce them to the wonder of sharing their story…
Thank you!

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 a  week-long retreat.    I will be teaching all new workshops for the 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

  • 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.  

 

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, 2019 – no exceptions.  Travel insurance is highly recommended.
Let’s Write in Greece!

"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!

Sign up and set your voice free!"
