Are Travel Writers Really Magicians?

As I’ve been designing our new Travel Writers Detox + Reset retreat, I’ve been thinking about the topic of burnout.

The other side of this Janus coin is often thought to be balance, and I’ve seen a number of newsletters from freelancers and other online business owners recently concerning their struggles with this topic.

Which Retreats Should We Schedule This Fall and Winter? (Win a Delightful Chocolate Gift Box!)

It was very much a coincidence that we came to own our retreat house in the Catskills right when Dream of Travel Writing and the Travel Magazine Database were getting off the ground.

Now, of course, I couldn’t imagine it any other way.

Having the opportunity to work intensively, in-person with writers on the issues that they are struggling with has completely transformed my ideas for how we can help writers.
