The Editors Retreat

We've created a luxury retreat for editors

We were looking to get away, relax and have fun, so...


While this is our first retreat for editors, it’s hardly our first program for editors or our first retreat. This is simply the first time we’ve put editors + retreat together. We’re bringing wordsmiths from around the world to unwind while networking and having a fabulous time indulging in five-star luxury at an affordable price.

The Editors Retreat was founded in 2020 by Tia Ross.

Tia Ross

Tia Ross, founder of The Editors Retreat, has worked in the event production and travel industries—specifically, conference and retreat planning, management, and group travel—since 1999. Tia is the event planning consultant for the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) conference (2019 & 2021), where she is responsible for site and venue sourcing, contract negotiation, and event budgeting. She is also a former member of the EFA’s Board of Directors, the creator of both Black Editors Network (BEN) and Black Writers Collective, and manager of BEN’s co-operative advertising directory.

A habitual entrepreneur, veteran editor, mentor, and writing coach, Tia is also the founder and owner of six other entities, co-founder of a writers retreat company, and a polymath who uses an abundance of skills and know-how to create programs and services that build others up. Each of her businesses was launched to inspire, nurture, and empower others’ successes. She has helped to launch the careers of hundreds of authors, editors, consultants, public speakers, and other individuals, by connecting them with the right information, resources, opportunities, connections, guidance, or support necessary to bring their dreams to life or ascend to the next level.
