1-2-1 Writing Retreats

Come to Spain, write and chill!


Sometimes all you need to get your book motivation ignited is some space for you to write and to be inspired

Invest in a writing retreat and get that book started, kickstarted or finished!

Your writing retreat

A 1-2-1 writing retreat and holiday will be for you, if you want to:-

  •  Some space to write, away from it all
  • Find inspiration for your book
  • Have your personal writing coach by your side
  • Pull something you are writing into shape
  • Know how to plan, write, publish and market your book & yourself

PS: what about your dissertation or thesis?

When you book

We'll do a 45 minute discovery session to kick-start the process

Before the retreat

We will look at what needs to happen before you jump on a plane that gets you connected to your inner book

Chapter synopsis - pull together a brief overview of what your book is about

On retreat

There are many things that we can do. Before you arrive we will have set some outcomes. These will be reviewed when you get here.  

Some ideas for you:-

Chapter structure - based on your outline, we'll flesh out your book. This makes writing the book easier - people see things in patterns, so we chunk the chapter down and create your pattern for writing and for your readers to enjoy

Time to write and share - Write as many chapters (in rough draft) as is possible and share via your blog

We look at how your personal story can be used in your book

We can explore how you will use your book to build your brand or create other products and services

How it works (typically)

  • Each day we will start at 10.30am (or earlier). This gives you time to review what you did the day before, reflect with a walk and to enjoy your breakfast
  • We will then spend the next 1-2 hours looking at aspects of your book, answering questions and preparing you for writing. 
  • At approx. 16.30, we will come back together to look at what has been achieved and what needs to be considered for the following day

Post Retreat - writing group

 A Facebook group called Writing for the soul is there for you to share your work and to ask questions.

You can additionally book a book coaching package. You get a 50% off the cost of your retreat when you book and pay for this at the same time.

The writers retreat the rest of the details

Los Morillas

The retreat is based at my home, an old village cortijo, which is in a tiny hamlet away from it all.  The peace of the hills offers the writer a special tranquil place to relax, recharge their batteries and write their book. The village is 25 minutes away from the nearest town of Albox and 45 minutes away from Mojacar and the beach.

The village is surrounded by hills and lots of lovely walks through the rambla. With no pollution, at night, you can gaze at the stars from the terrace, while pondering life and your book..

Your accomodation

Your bedroom has a delicious comfy bed and desk for you to write at. You will share the family bathroom with me.

Retreat bedroom

There are two lounges and two terraces, so you can get quiet time and find your favourite place to sit.

Training will take place in my office.

Dietary requirements

If you need anything please let me know, if at all possible we will ensure that any special dietary requirements can be met.

I am gluten, dairy, nightshade and a few other things free, so I understand the importance of you being able to enjoy your food while you stay with us.

Please ensure you let me know at time of book if you have any serious allergies.

Meet the fur babies

I have three dogs. Ferdy Dog, Marley Moo and Angel. They are beautiful souls and will enjoy meeting you and accompanying you on your walks.


Available dates

Anytime between April and October.

It is very hot in July and August. Spring and autumn are still hot.

Retreats are generally not run in the winter months as it is very cold. The house is an old village house which does not have central heating. Heating is supplied via three log burners. If this floats your boat, let me know.

Post Retreat

 Please let me know if you want to stay on in Spain and explore and I will help you to arrange some activities
