The Dream Author Retreat… for members only

The Dream Author retreat will take place at the beautiful Hewenden Mill Cottages, very near Haworth/Bronte country, from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th February 2020.

Two other Dream Author retreats at Hewenden in March 2020 have already sold out.

I’ve had many happy family holidays and writing sessions at Hewenden, which is the family business of one of my best friends, Susan Richardson. Susan is the most brilliant and welcoming host, and Hewenden is stunning and absolutely perfect for us to hunker down in and do some great Dream Author work. I’m very, very fussy about where I stay, folks. Very. So trust me when I say: it’s ace.

The cost of this retreat will be £400 per person, or £300 per person if two of you want to share a twin room. The cost is £500 per person if you want to guarantee an ensuite/private bathroom. On the retreat, you will get two nights’ accommodation, all meals provided, and two evenings and two and a half days of in-person coaching with me (Sophie). There’s a limit to how many people can be accommodated, so if you’d like to reserve a place, let me know as soon as you can by emailing:  [email protected]

If you can’t make this retreat, don’t worry; there will be other retreat opportunities, and there will also be at least one full-day Dream Author conference in either London or Cambridge during the year.

Dream Author In-Person Events for Non-Members

Occasionally, there will be Dream Author panels, sessions, workshops and residential courses that anyone can attend if they want to experience a taster of what the full programme has to offer.

Here are the ones that have been planned so far:

“The crucial thing is to realise that other people’s behaviour and thoughts and actions can only affect our emotional state if we let them. If a publisher, fellow writer or reviewer says something discouraging, we don’t have to think ‘Oh, no, I must be less talented and less likely to succeed than I thought I was.’ Instead, we can think, ‘Someone is saying some words near my ear, and I can always choose what I want to think about those words, and what I want to make them mean.’”
