We offer practical, hands-on workshops that give you the nuts 'n bolts to finish your work-in-progress (WIP), take on the self-publishing challenge or to help you understand the business of being an indie author.

We also mentor authors one-on-one, guiding them through the book writing process.  In addition, we conduct writing retreats that provide a much-needed escape, where there are no distractions, lots of inspirational exercises in idyllic surroundings joined by other writers with the same goal - finally getting that work in progress done!


We have scheduled the next writers' retreat!
