Roxan McDonald and MexChic Retreats are teaming up to offer this 7-night full-service writing retreat in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Join us to experience the city voted The World’s Best City to Visit by Travel and Leisure Magazine with a knowledgeable, bilingual tour guide and concierge. Taking a trip with MexChic Retreats is like visiting a good friend who knows everyone in town and every secret treasure to be found in the city.  

Roxan has designed the retreat schedule to offer daily craft talks and writing prompts in the morning, plenty of time to write and explore the city, as well as afternoon workshops to receive constructive feedback on your writing. This retreat is appropriate for beginners and experienced writers. Roxan is known for her ability to ignite your creativity, and find each writer’s strengths and expand from there.

Tuition includes accommodation in a beautiful three star bed and breakfast, daily breakfasts, coffee and local pastries, pick up and drop off from the airport, two walking tours of the city, and a personal concierge to assist you in making restaurant reservations and planning excursions. MexChic Retreats will also offer guidance with flight reservations.

We will be interviewing each participant before securing your reservation to ensure that we are able to meet your needs as a traveler and writer.
