Julie is one of the best in the business, and helped the brilliant AJ Pearce get her book deal for charming debut novel Dear Mrs Bird, released as a lead launch with Picador. Who knows, the next time it may be you!
Whether you’re writing your first novel or your twentieth, Julie Cohen’s guided retreat is time for you to write, reflect, and hone your novel to the best it can be. Julie will give individual feedback on each writer’s work in the mornings; the afternoons are free for you to write, walk, or find inspiration in the beautiful countryside; evenings are time to share work and conversation in front of the fire. This residential retreat is ideal for those who want some time for a special project, and to take their writing to the next level.
Here are some of the comments from writers who have been on Julie’s retreats:
I found my one-to-one with Julie really useful. I really like that she doesn’t just say ‘No, you can’t do that’ or pat people on the head and tell them it’s brilliant. It feels like a genuine conversation about how to develop an idea.
I thought the retreat went really well and the venue, content and organisation were spot on. The balance of group talks and time to write was perfect.
I haven’t met anyone who has been on any of Julie’s courses and not been really thrilled and inspired, and, more often than not, more successful following it.
You feel quite cocooned and sort of protected and I think that’s a bit of magic if people are needing to dig deep to fix their novels, or push on, or just find the wood from the trees.
It was really good to have a mix of people all writing completely different things, as it was very interesting to see what challenges their particular books and genres posed.
