Free Workshop Intro for 10 Writers!

The “Forget Brand: What’s Your Artist’s Mission?” workshop by Ariana Seigel has been taught in LA and NYC…and now we’re bringing it to Costa Rica!

This week-long workshop from July 15-22, 2017 will include:

(The mangoes will also just so happen to be in season!)

How do you know the workshop is right for you before taking the leap?

We’ve decided to give 10 interested writers a *FREE* intro to Ariana Seigel’s workshop—first come, first serve!

Ready to get over your writer’s block? Interested in coming to Costa Rica, but unsure if this workshop is right for you? Write to lisaatnormas@gmail.com with a description of what you feel your creative blocks are: politics, fear of failure, or *gulp* fear of success? There are no wrong answers!

Ariana will then schedule a chat to see how her workshop could best help you reach your creative goals.

Check out our Eventbrite page and join us under the mango trees! But hurry—There are only two spots left!

Interested in hosting an event yourself sometime next year? Send a pitch to the same email address with a description of what you love to teach and why. We accept pitches from qualified workshop leaders year-round.

Feel free to share any of the info about the workshop and the free intro . . . or keep it to yourself 😉

Who Would You Go to Costa Rica With?

Are you a writer holed up for the winter? Are your past five Instagram photos of your computer and coffee? You need a break.

Who would you go to Costa Rica with?

For today only (11/23), I’m doing a ‘Bring a Friend‘ pre-Black Friday special for Week 1 and Week 3 of my writer workshops (Week 2 only has one spot left).

Pay with PayPal (instead of Eventbrite) and save $80 each on writer workshops. ($1000 for a week for two people, instead of $1160 with Eventbrite fees).

The week includes yoga and food. I will give belly dance classes upon request.

Drinks and outings to the beach/zip line/monkey tours are extra, but will be coordinated by me.

Week 1: January 3-10
Acting Exercises for the Creative Writer

Leader: Isabelle Pierre

In Acting Exercises for the Creative Writer, we’ll explore how actors use physical exercises (including Laban, Lecoq, psychology gesture and improv) to explore character. Come ready to move, play and feel a little silly. At the end of the week we’ll have a short reading based workshop discoveries.

Week 3: January 21-28
Success through Self-Publishing
Leader: Robert Kroese

Have you ever thought about self-publishing, but felt that you weren’t tech savvy? Robert Kroese will cover the ins and outs of self publishing, including the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing, e-book formatting, distribution, and marketing your book.

Who would you bring to Costa Rica for a writer workshop? Email lisaatnormas@gmail.com and let me know what you are writing, who you would bring, and what questions you have about Costa Rica! 

Welcome to Norma’s!

Norma’s retreat in Costa Rica has over 10 acres of property to lounge and relax. If you’re looking for a calm, quiet community while you’re in Costa Rica, Norma’s is the place for you!

We have five studios, 3 1-bedroom houses, and 2 2-bedroom deluxe spaces.

Who stays at Norma’s? Norma’s is a community—some folks work in Costa Rica, some come to write a book or learn to paint, and some stay for months while looking for a permanent place to live. If you’re looking to stay in a quiet town and have plenty of space to roam around, Norma’s is the place for you! We provide a relaxing space where you can swim, meditate, or pick mangoes!

Norma’s is right on the way to Jaco, and near the Poas Volcano and Braulio Carrillo National Park. We are a fifteen-minute drive away from SJO international airport, and the Coca-Cola and Caribe bus depots in San Jose are one bus ride away.

Folks staying for a couple of weeks, a month or more enjoy Norma’s. If you’re looking for a “home” while you explore Costa Rica, we are centrally located in a quiet Costa Rican town. We’re a good place to get away from it all!
