The thing that makes you a writer is writing.


But sitting down and starting isn’t always easy.


I’m Charlie. Think of me as your personal cheerleader.

I know you can do it, but maybe it would be easier with a bit of support.

That’s what I’m here for.


I help writers do their thing by providing:


  • Time and space to write

  • Helpful tools and structures for writing

  • Personal support

Writing will make you feel incredible. This is it. It’s what you’re here to do.

Not writing, on the other hand, feels awful.

What are you going to choose?

Is your question one of these? If so, no need to email, here’s your answer!

– RESIDENTIAL RETREATS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE DATES LISTED. I don’t own the retreat house and can’t take bookings for dates that don’t exist on this site. If you’ve booked – awesome! I’ll get back to you and confirm ASAP.

–  IF YOU’VE BOOKED A ONE-DAY RETREAT, YOU DO NOT NEED AN EMAIL CONFIRMATION. If your PayPal payment went through, you’re booked. It should have taken you through to a confirmation page after paying, but occasionally goes wonky. You’ll get directions and a goal-setting sheet a few days beforehand and I’ll have your name on a list when you arrive. Can’t wait to see you there…

If you have another question, email is best because I often turn my phone off when working (focus, people!). If I’m on a writing retreat, out of the country or deep in a draft, I might only check email once a week. I’m not ignoring you, promise.

If it's easier, here's a form:

You’ll also get a toolkit to help you focus and develop great writing habits, along with motivation tips and useful things for writers every couple of weeks.

That sounds nice
