Norfolk – From 6.30pm Tuesday 26th February to 5pm Friday 1st March
We run regular Book Writing Retreats, with eight authors working with a team of four Rethink Press mentors (Lucy, Joe, Mike and Verity) over three days at a luxury hotel & spa in the beautiful Norfolk countryside.
The authors always have a brilliant time (and so do we), refining their concepts and moving their books further along than they thought would be possible. Each of them has a personalised schedule for the kind of planning, coaching and development they need, along with time for writing, that allows them to get the most out of their time with us.
We’ve booked our next retreat at the Barnham Broom Hotel and Spa, and there are just eight spaces for authors who really want to commit to getting their books out into the world and working for them, their brand and their business. If you are one of those, this is what you’ll experience:
“The Book Retreat surpassed my expectations. I made significant progress and the support of the world class Rethink Team was excellent. We had considerable input throughout as required, and a great environment to get to the writing.”Dan Janes
ARRIVAL: You arrive at Barnham Broom on Tuesday evening for a meet-up, delicious buffet supper and introduction to the mentors and authors. After that, and throughout the retreat, you’ll be able swim in the pool, play tennis, work out in the gym or use the spa (the Thai foot massages are to die for) before retiring to your comfortable and peaceful room.
DAY ONE: For those who need it, Wednesday is for positioning and planning. After breakfast, those at the start of their journey or needing to revisit will have a BookPlan session with Lucy, positioning and structuring their book. Mike and Verity will work one-to-one on more advanced manuscripts and Joe will be working with everyone individually throughout the retreat on titles, sub-titles and initial cover concepts. We’ll stop briefly for a buffet lunch and by 5pm, you’ll be amazed at how much closer your book is to the finish line. The evening is yours to eat in the hotel or locally, use the spa, or to keep writing.
DAY TWO: On Thursday, you can work individually with your choice of mentors in the Colton Room, write in your own bedroom, and use the lounge, bar, or terrace as breakout spaces. We’ll de-brief over a buffet lunch and celebrate your progress together over a three-course dinner in the hotel in the evening.
DAY THREE: Friday is for checking in with mentors, and/or writing. We’ll have lunch together and give any final guidance before you leave at whatever time suits you.
FOLLOW-UP: After the retreat, we will all keep in touch through the private Facebook page, where you can share progress and frustrations and get advice and support.
