JULIE COHEN, TOP MENTOR, SEPTEMBER 25TH (four nights)

go here to see more on Julie's site. You will book with her direct.

One of the best writing tutors is author Julie Cohen, a former Richard and Judy book of the month author. I've been on most of her previous one day workshops, weekly retreats and weekends over the last seven years and enjoyed every one of them.She's currently mentoring me through my 'big one' - French or Dutch - which will be finished this summer.

Julie is offering a four night stay at our guest house Retreats for You in Sheepwash, Devon, with one to one mentoring and in depth discussion about your own work. Plus daily workshops. Full board, including endless hot drinks and snacks is on offer - own room, shared bathroom, wine at dinner - in a thatched 1600s house in picturesque North Devon with rolling hills and a river for local walks and a mini gym in the studio. A walled garden is also there for a change of scene. Comfortable rooms with tea and coffee making facilities, quaint and olde worlde, but with great wifi. 

September 25th - 29th. Prices on Julie's website (scroll down) nb - three of the seven places already gone (as at 24th March)

 

SARA SARRE, EDITOR WITH ACCESS TO TOP AGENT, June 5th (four nights)

Themed workshop – Perfecting Your First Chapter and submission with Sara Sarre.

Your first chapter is what will sell your novel time and time again: to your agent, your publisher, the marketing team and eventually to your reader. It needs to be good. The week will be dedicated to the opening line, the first paragraph and finally, the first chapter. We’ll look at how to hook your reader and to get your characters to leap off the page. Along with this, we’ll discuss the submission process and how to summarise your story. There will be three workshops and each participant will receive an hour long, one to one session with Sara.  For more details and availability email This email address is being protected from spambots.
