Publishing Retreats

We are thrilled to offer these unique publishing experiences to our authors. You won’t find anything else like them in Australia.

Spend two days or a week with us in our hinterland sanctuary near beautiful Byron Bay, building your self-publishing plan or actually publishing your book. You’ll be working with experts and fulfilling your creative dreams. It’s better than a holiday!


The Self-Publishing Planning Retreat

Perfect for the author trying to decide on the best path to publication, this short, intensive workshop will teach you everything need to know to self-publish successfully.


The Book Publishing Retreat

A unique chance to take time out of your busy life and get your book published – in just one week.


By the end of the week, your book will be available for customers to buy, and you will be equipped with expert advice on how to sell, market and promote it successfully.


Taught by the Best

The retreats are led by accomplished book publisher, Roz Hopkins. Roz has a career in traditional publishing that spans more than twenty years, three continents, and six publishing companies. She knows the industry inside out, and combines an astute business sense with a natural passion for people and their creative endeavours.


She’s easy to talk to and fun to work with. Roz is an experienced coach and has been mentor to hundreds of authors. A writer herself, she understands authors. Roz currently runs the innovative publishing company, Captain Honey, with her partner book designer Natalie Winter.


Retreat Accomodation

You’ll be staying at “Sweet Retreat”, a small self-contained studio on our property located in the exclusive country town of Bangalow, about 15 minutes drive from Byron Bay. The Balinese-style studio is stylishly presented, with hand-crafted furnishings, a wet-room style bathroom and, of course, lots of books. You have your own outdoor bath from which to stargaze after a hard day’s work on the book. During the warmer months, you are welcome to use our in-ground saltwater pool.


Free high speed wifi, tea, coffee and breakfast is included.
