This is also your chance to publish a book with Hay House UK and become a bestselling author – one participant will be awarded a publishing contract with Hay House and a £5,000 advance!!!

Join us for a very special two-day workshop with some of Hay House’s finest speakers and authors. The Writer's Workshop will give you the combined wisdom of more than 50 years of writing and publishing experience, including workshops with:

Hay House President/CEO Reid Tracy, who transformed Hay House from a publisher of three books in 1988 to one of the largest independent publishing companies in the world and the leading publisher in the self-help industry.

Michelle Pilley, the Managing Director and Publisher of Hay House UK, will offer key advice as she brings you her 30 years of successful publishing experience and expert knowledge of how to nail a publishing deal.

Julia Cameron, the bestselling author of The Artist’s Way, will lead seminars on her experience of creative writing at its best. Whether you are brand new to her work or have a bookshelf filled with years of ‘Morning Pages’ journals, whether you are working on your first book or your fifth, or simply wishing to experience more creativity, Julia will offer up crucial advice to every attendee.

A novelist, playwright, essayist and short story writer, Cameron works in multiple mediums, and she believes we all have this potential. Using a lively mix of exercises, Q&A and lecture, Cameron provides participants with a rewarding day of expansion. Expect to review basic tools and learn new ones. Writing, Cameron believes, is our birth right. We all have the right to write.

Robert Holden, renowned psychologist and author will lead ‘Courage to Write! Overcoming Inner Blocks to Success.’ Writing is a dare!
