Coaching Retreats

Are you just starting and need someone to walk you through the process?  Are you further along and just want to sit down with someone who understands books and talk through your story?  Maybe smooth out some rough parts?  Get some direction on how to make it stronger, tips on making it shine?  How about feedback on promotion and even a chance to pitch it to an agent?  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a coach to help you on the journey?

Yeah, we think so too.  And that’s why we’ve designed two retreats in conjunction with the purposes of My Book Therapy – to help writers discover the novel inside.  From idea to plot, to story problems, to polish, promotion and pitch, MBT Coaching retreats will help you take the story brewing in your heart and make it a reality.


Deep Woods Writing Camp!

(registration for this event is not yet open)

Summer Session:  June 17-23, 2018

(Autumn Session:  October 14-20, 2018)

Are you struggling to find a time to write?

Are you in the middle of a book, and not sure where to go next?

Are you starting a book and need help brainstorming?

Would you like help with your wordsmithing?

Maybe you’d simply like someone who will read your work and give you honest, constructive feedback. Someone who’s knows what they’re doing. Who’s been in the industry publishing award-winning books for years.

Or you just need to get away, find some space and time to write, be inspired by other writers, be given some feedback to break through to a new place in your writing life.

If so, it’s time to come to camp.

Deep Woods Writing Camp is an intimate, writing-focused get away in the north woods of Minnesota. Your camp counselor is RITA and Christy award-winning, USA Today best-selling, multi-published author Susan May Warren.

Deep Thinker’s Retreat

February 23-27, 2018

5 day of intense, one-on-one writing coaching by the best-selling, award-winning novelists of My Book Therapy. Designed to meet the individual needs of every writer and their story,this retreat concentrates on your writing craft, and how to make it stronger.

Every day we’ll meet in the morning to concentrate on specific topics from plot to characterization to emotional layering to word painting. In the afternoon, you’ll apply these lessons to your current WIP, with hands-on mentoring to help you apply each lesson in your own voice. In the evening, we’ll dissect great movies, discuss publishing issues, brainstorm book snarls, and do writing exercises designed to assist you to reach a new level in writing.

And did we mention that it’s in Florida?  In February?
