Are you just getting started on your book idea, half way through your manuscript, or even “finished” and not sure the next step to publish? A writer’s retreat provides the creative environment you need to escape the busy-ness and get it finished!

Imagine how you can jump start your book project with seven days of inspired writing time and personal feedback and coaching with Julie Salisbury, Founder of Influence Publishing Inc. who has published over 200 authors in the last decade.  Whatever stage your book is at, Julie will help you personally. If you are at the starting stage you will work on mind maps, chapter outlines and your first chapter drafts, all the while drawing from the sensory and artistic elements around you.  There are no interruptions, no distractions.  It is you with your writing, in the company of fellow writers, where you can truly explore and examine all those ideas you’ve wanted to grab hold of, and focus whole-heartedly on your craft.
