Book Bound Retreat 2016

We’ve just about recovered from our second Book Bound Writers’ Retreat. And what a weekend retreat it was! With an amazing group of talented children’s authors, back-to-back teaching sessions, five literary agents, one key note speaker in the shape of Sarah Odedina of Pushkin Press and countless yummy puddings, we had everything we needed to send our new friends away full of inspiration.

And that’s before we’ve even stopped to consider the Kent location, a mere 45 minutes from London…

From first chapter breakdown through to honed pitch to agents, we aim to provide as comprehensive an overview as possible. What remains Book Bound’s strength is the friendship between the organisers, which informs the mood of the entire weekend, and our unique range of experience as both children’s authors and publishers. If you want a 360 degree view of the industry, you’ve come to the right place. Just ask this year’s attendees…

There will be more Book Bound day events coming up and, of course, another writers’ retreat – so watch this space.

  1. Such a beautiful setting, such lovely writing colleagues and professional hosts who worked so hard to get the best out of us all. It was a perfect weekend to take the time and really get my head around all those essential elements of character, plot, openings and first impressions and seeing how gathering those threads together is what makes a really strong narrative. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I feel my writing has really surged ahead.
