I always thought that writing was a solo process.

I always thought that writing was a solo process. I never got the value of community until I started doing some of Dr. Laura’s pre-writing workshops and came to her retreat.

The number one thing that surprised me

The number one thing that surprised me was how well put-together the Book in a Barn program is.

The “What”

This book has always been in me. Laura’s support and coaching at the Write Your Book in a Barn retreat got me clear about why I wanted to write the book. After getting the “why,” the “what” started to flow.

Almost Effortless

Laura cleared the runway of my book writing dreams with her support, expertise, and guidance, so my book could take flight! Her gift for showing me how to write my thoughts down into words made the process of formulating one chapter after another almost effortless. Our weekly, online meetings had us assess, critique, and formulate new strategies for developing and revising my writing powerfully together. When my friend Cathy shared her book idea with me, I recommended Laura’s services to her without hesitation.

Make a Month’s Worth of Progress
in One Weekend!

Our laser-focused writing sessions will help you make a MONTH’S worth of progress on your book in just one weekend! Please bring your laptop, unless you prefer to write by hand in your own notebook (or bring both). You’ll share ideas and drafts of your writing to get the supportive but constructive feedback you need from Dr. Laura Bush and other writers.

If You Want to Write a Book,
Then You Deserve this Get-Away!

Our pace will be steady, but fun and relaxed. We create an upbeat, encouraging, and intellectually stimulating space for very productive writing sessions.

OUR MOTTO: “Writing is thinking, so let’s think together!” Be prepared to share your writing at each of the 10 writing session with other authors. Also, you can look forward to tasty “home-cooked” meals and snacks to fuel your body and energize your mind.

Gallup Along with a “Riding Group”
to Spur You On

Individuals who participate in a “Riding Group” always benefit from getting and giving concrete, specific reactions to other people’s writing. This means you’ll have a real audience who will empower you to think from both a writer’s and a reader’s point of view about your manuscript as it unfolds.

Participants at this retreat will be writing nonfiction books, either to share their expertise or to tell their life story. The two genres (expert books and autobiographies) overlap because experts know the power of telling their own story, and autobiographers chronicle the knowledge, wisdom, and expertise they’ve earned over their life.
