The Next-level Journey for Storytellers

Getting started as a writer is one thing. Going the distance… something else entirely. Why do so few authors taste success? And of those who do, why do even less manage to stay creative over time?

This advanced gathering is crafted for the dedicated novelist who has done well… but knows that far more awaits. It's also a chance for the not-yet-published writer to discover the best foundation for shaping stories and pursuing dreams of becoming a published author.

Allen Arnold created this brand new advanced course to propel serious authors and their stories to the next level. In this fast-paced, interactive summit, you’ll discover ways to:

  • step deeper into your creativity with the Creator
  • restore your heart and release your stress
  • experience exponential growth that keeps your creativity—and readers—buzzing
  • spot and defeat the blind spots that bog down your success
  • see your brand and approach to writing with new eyes
  • embrace your truer calling and maximize its potential

This unique event offers equal parts creative breakthrough and storyteller soul-care. It’s dedicated time to re-chart your future and renew your intimacy with God in the very things that make you come alive.

In person & Virtual

A limited number of people (around 60) will be able to attend the Winter Creativity Summit in-person in Colorado Springs. The entire event will be live-streamed so attendees may also choose to attend virtually.


We are excited to work with The Hideaway Inn & Conference Center for our retreat this year! If you are registered to attend in person no further action is required on your part to make a reservation. We will take care of everything! We are limiting the number of single room options due to the fact that it will reduce our overall capacity for in-person attendance. If single rooms are sold out and you still want one I encourage you to register at that level and join the waiting list. Once we achieve the minimum attendance we need we may begin to open up more single rooms as we are able and you will be first in line.
