Upcoming Memoir retreats 



RECENT Memoir Retreats

I am excited to be taking BookCoachMagick clients to Serifos and Athens, Greece next summer! Information here (pricepoint not yet determined):


Heavenly La Cañada, Immersive writing in Mexico at
La Canada 

It is tough to plan live retreats during Covid, but I am not giving up! BookCoachMagick is planning memoir retreats in Santa Fe, NM and at La Canada Ranch, in Jalisco, Mexico.

These are to be highly curated, Covid-safe events, with delicious local cuisine available and many extras.


If you are interested in a luxurious writer's getaway, with plenty of nature, gourmet food, spa treatments and gorgeous amenities with cozy writing nooks all around, both indoors and out, join us at Ojo Caliente Santa Fe, New Mexico this June. (6/21-/6/26)

If you desire a more far-flung writing adventure, I am planning another fabulous retreat with Miriam Garcia at the La Cañada ranch in Mexico in October. This is a very safe, family-owned ranch where all your needs will be met, with fantastic local foods, rustic, charming amenities, and lots of great places to gather and work.

Contact me via email (elicoh at with interest in either of these; make sure to write Santa Fe or La Canada in the subject line.


Ojo Caliente Santa Fe is a writer's dream getaway location, with the right amount of private writing spaces: from comfy rooms to cafe tables to private outdoor patios (with hot tubs) and more, plus a deluxe onsite spa and award-winning restaurant.  For writers who desire a balance of private writing time and literary community, this is the retreat for you! 


Take time to wander around the beautiful grounds, soak in a mineral soaking pool, or cast a bit further out for a mini hike on the designated trails on the Llano.There is so much to do, but also plenty of time and space to write and focus on memoir projects in a beautiful northern New Mexico setting. This is a gournet experience, and opportunity to really pamper yourself while working on your book. $2500. for a single room, $2250. for shared accomodations. Contact me for details.




BookCoachMagick clients rave about the experience of attending a retreat at La Cañada. I am excited to be planning one again with Miriam Garcia this October.

This is a beautiful, very safe, family-owned ranch where all your needs will be taken care of, with fantastic local foods, rustic and charming amenities and lots of great places to write and gather.


Bells & Whistles? Try horseback rides up mountain paths, through tiny villages with overlooks, a visit to a tortilla factory (with a hands-on lesson), and daytrips to the  village of Ajijic on the banks of Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest inland lake. Want to join a group of inspired and inspiring authors for 5 days and nights?  You could not find a more unique and curated retreat!
