The Book Authoring Workshop is an intense, highly focused, two day book writing workshop for first-time authors. It takes place in a lush green 13 acre farm in a beautiful village. The dates for event are September 2 & 3, 2017. The aim of the retreat is to encourage and help the participants publish their book in 2016.

The event uses NaNoWriMo, the global book authoring project, as the backbone for this event. NaNoWriMo, encourages people to write 50,000 words in a single month. If people can do that in a single month, imagine what we can do in 3 months.

The Authoring Retreat goes beyond this by forming a support group and guides the participants in planning, editing, publishing and marketing of their books.
