Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love, Committed: A Love Story, The Signature of All Things, and the upcoming Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, is hosting a “Writing, Truth and Community” retreat from 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, November 7. I absolutely have to be there. Would anyone mind covering the cost of my trip?

“I think I deserve something beautiful,” Elizabeth Gilbert wrote in Eat, Pray, Love. I feel that way, too, and that’s why I need somebody to give me $2,100 so I can drink wine with her in Napa Valley. As Liz would say, “to travel is worth any cost or sacrifice”—$2,100 might sound like a lot at first, but it’s a pretty straightforward investment when you consider the incredible ripple affect it will have on my career, personal life, and spiritual identity. Don’t you want that for me?

Your donation would cover airfare, two nights at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, and a $997 VIP seating package, which is honestly worth the extra $600 because on top of the inspirational talk, writing & creativity session, onstage conversation with Q&A, gourmet lunch, and wine reception that comes with the regular ticket, a VIP ticket also gets me front-row reserved seating, an exclusive post-event cocktail reception “with the literati,” a signed copy of Liz’s new book, Brilliant-Writer.com’s NEW on-line writing course filled with over 5 hours of amazing content to help bring your writing life to the next level!, and a signed copy of the memoir Beamish Boy by Albert Flynn DeSilver.

I would like to cross the street to walk in the sunshine. I would like God to play in my bloodstream. I would like to go to Elizabeth Gilbert LIVE. I accept cash, checks, and Venmo payments.
