Writer's Workshop Retreat


Join us in beautiful Banff, Alberta, Canada for this unique workshop/retreat that combines everything you need to know about writing and publishing combined with a beautiful setting where there will be ample opportunities to enjoy nature, walks along the river, and more. This event is limited to 8 participants to ensure COVID19 regulations are adhered to and that you receive loads of one-on-one instruction. 

This beautiful and rustic setting is home to our 2021 Writer's Workshop Retreat.  Your afternoons will be free, with sessions in the morning and evening.  The hotel concierge can assist you in planning afternoon excursions, or you can walk through the quaint and beautiful town, or along the river which is located a mere 1/2 a block from the hotel.  The Banff Park Lodge is the only 4 Star Canada Select full-service resort hotel and conference centre in Banff,  located in the heart of historical Banff National Park.

Enjoy the rustic lodge and the scenic town and surrounding areas during your free afternoons.

This walking path is just steps from the hotel and leads to a waterfall.

”I have enjoyed reading this book. The author reveals her own struggles in life which she so masterfully overcame. She provides specific tools for the readers to overcome the adversities in their lives and to live a life of freedom from fears, guilt, shame, and resentments. She draws a clear map for achieving one's full potential with optimism and joy. This is a book of victory. The author's name, Victoria, is truly her omen. Such an inspirational book!” Jelena Bankovic

“The author really opens up her heart and talks about the adversities in her life, that will probably hit home for many of us. However, unlike many other books, she also shares powerful exercises on how to get through these issues.”

“I loved her instructions on overcoming our limiting beliefs which we acquire throughout our lives without even knowing it. This is a true how to heal yourself on the inside book.”

“This book is extremely well written. I enjoyed the stories that I myself can relate to. The exercises in the book have been helpful in my growth. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to grow and develop the self.”

“This was a fabulous read. It is written in a matter of fact and easy to understand, and is packed full of wisdom that can be applied to everyday life!

“Victoria writes authentically, straight from the heart. Her sharing in such a deep and personal way propels me forward, page-by-page! This book is not only highly informative, but it is also an invaluable resource. Her courage to share her personal story lights the way for us all to embrace our own story and bring it to the light!
