JustWrite Retreat

Get Away and Write in a Place of Sand, Sea, and Serenity!

Oct 1-8, 2017
Cape Cod, MA

Just imagine how much writing you will complete when you have a week of deep rest, amazing ocean and marsh views, a roomy, comfy, historic home where you can spread out and write, and the company of 5 other writers?

Join me on the afternoon of Sunday, October 1, 2017, at Green Gates,  a bright and airy “Old Cape” home on the prestigious “Captain’s Mile” in the heart of vibrant Yarmouth Port village. Built in 1850 for Captain Winthrop Baker and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the fully remodeled home features six living areas, including a library with a window seat, internet, a huge back yard, and is just a short walk to beaches, marshes, and all the beauty of historic Cape Cod.

Last October, we had a wonderful time at the Author-izing Retreat in New York.  This year, I’m thrilled to be able to offer a retreat that is twice as long and at a lower price.

retreat 16I have worked with Lynne for a long time, and she’d already taught me a lot about writing non-fiction books and publishing in general. I admire her and her work. I went to her retreat hoping to have time write, space to write, and to meet Lynne face to face. I came back with a lot more: a renewed confidence in my writing and marketing abilities as well as new friends, kindred spirits and writing colleagues for life. Lynne’s retreats are full of inspiration, practical tips, and free time to explore and put all the info she shares together in your own unique voice. It was also a transformative spiritual experience for me. It’s only been a month, and I’m already getting much more attention for my existing debut novel (due out summer 2017), and I’ve found renewed motivation to work on my next one. ~Kathy Ramsperger, Author

I recently had the pleasure to attend a writer’s retreat in upper New York hosted by Lynne Klippel. She called it an Authorizing Experience. Lynne brought together a group of writers, myself included, helping us become better at what we do.

The genius of the structure of the retreat was that she brought together a small group of like-minded individuals, some already published and some not, while she served as a catalyst for building synergy within our group. We benefited from the diversity that resulted in true collaboration in a nurturing environment. Lynne urged us to continually think bigger, to think of ways that we can get our ideas out so that we connect with our readers in a meaningful manner.

Lynne is an excellent book coach.  She gauges your ability well and takes you to the next level of effectiveness and achievement. She does this by evaluating your strengths and urging you to try new ways of writing.  In my case, she noticed that I am very comfortable speaking to a group. And she saw that I was wearing a wrist brace because I am trying to prevent developing carpal tunnel syndrome from advancing any further.   I also had mentioned that I recently started using the dictation tool called Dragon at home. Therefore she suggested that I stand up and dictate what I want to say. When I returned home, I found that it for works exceedingly well for my style of creativity.

If you are an inspiring writer, or even if you’ve already published a book or two, and are serious I highly recommend that you do whatever it takes to attend one of Lynne’s retreats. You will be glad did so.~Jimm Hughey, M. S. ,Author

Having never before experienced a writing retreat, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But knowing the fine work and programs Lynne Klippel offers, her Author-izing adventure had to be one of impeccable taste, deep learning, and soul-reaching writing. I was not disappointed. Even though set against the beautiful fall landscape along the Hudson River of upstate New York, the weather could not compare with the talented and varied authors that were spread informally, yet comfortably, around the room. Lynne made the days pass almost too quickly by with the activities she planned for our experiential learning. If you ever get a chance to work with Lynne on this personal level, I suggest doing so. She is masterful at tapping into your potential as a writer.~~Peggy Lee Hanson, Chief Editor/Publisher
