This retreat has already started, if you would still like to take part then please contact us.

A weekend to help aspiring authors select and explore ideas, and tackle the challenges and processes of publishing. The retreat will be of value to writers of both nonfiction and fiction. It will not cover poetry, drama, or strictly academic work. There will be a devotional aspect, and time for writing and feedback.

The focus of the retreat will be to help would-be authors to:
- decide what sort of book they want to write
- understand the specific challenges of the genre
- develop their writing `persona`
- devise a robust structure for their book
- grasp the essentials of good prose
- create a publishing proposal
- consider the basics of book marketing

If you wish to stay longer, or start your stay earlier, please contact us about availability.
