Your writing retreat

A non-fiction writing retreat and holiday will be for you, if you want to:-

  • Discover your inspirational message or get clarity about what it is
  • Find inspiration for your book
  • Turn your ideas into something worth publishing
  • Pull something you are writing into shape
  • Know how to plan, write, publish and market your book & yourself
  • Have time and space to write

When you book

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

Before the retreat, 1st. - 9th Oct

You will be guided through a process to  intuitively develop an outline - this makes writing the book easier. My 'covers all of the senses' process gets you connected to your inner book

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

On retreat - 18th Oct - 23rd Oct

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

You have time to write and share - my goal is that everyone writes as many chapters (in rough draft) as is possible

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

How it works (typically)

  • Each day we will start at 10.30am (or earlier)
  • 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
