Retreat Testimonials

“I am still buzzing from my experience of attending the inaugural Dangerous and Brilliant Writing Retreat!
Not only did I come away with a brand new blog, †immediately snapped by Huffington Post, I also left with enduring insights about the process and experience of writing”
Dr Christy Newman, Assoc Prof UNSW Centre for Sexual Health
"I have facilitated workshops for a living for the past twelve years and have attended numerous workshops as a participant, Katie is hands down one of the best facilitators I have ever had the good fortune to work with! She embodies the authenticity she speaks about and balances the ability for straight talk fierceness with nurturing compassion."
Corrine Canter, Leadership Consultant
"I definitely got much more from those 3 days than I had anticipated. Under Katie’s expert guidance, the part of my own creativity long ago locked away was encouraged out and with that came all the structure to put it into shape and form, to actually write from the space I want to speak from was such a revelation!
If you are considering going on retreat with Katie I have no hesitancy in recommending it as must-do in your writing work, however you want to express your work into the world, Katie is absolutely the expert in guiding you and working with you in finding your voice within your writing. I had an extraordinary experience and I can confirm that I will be doing this again!”
