a book?

Join agent and writing mentor Sarah Bullen and her experienced team for guided in-person or online writing mentorships and retreats. At the end of our process, and if you really commit to it, ​you will have a book, an e-course or a story to share.

Do you have a story to tell?

Writing any book is no small thing. It is not a poem, a short story, or an article. It is not 10,000 or even 40,000 words.  A book is going to take you a year at least to write, and another year to get it to market. We take it seriously. 

The Writing Room has been running writing courses and writing mentorships for the past 17 years. We have retreats, mentorships and courses - all of these provide a structured system to help writers who want to become authors.  Our support systems will help you write your book. We also have more advanced workshops on editing, and getting your book published.

So many paths to getting published.
What is yours?

Join a Writing Retreat or Residency

Immerse Yourself in Creativity and Story

We have been retreating since 2016 when writers first started coming to the island of Lesbos, Greece to settle down for a deep immersion to write. Every year we go on a writing pilgrimage to Greece and have returning friends and new writers join.

Join us in Tuscany, Cape Town, Lamu or on the Camino. These smaller retreats offer a unique blend of holiday, deep immersion and quiet connection.
