Count Me In!

Enjoy an Intensive 5-day Creative Retreat with

Author, Editor and Writing Coach Susan Crossman

Do you have a creative project that you are yearning to embrace full-out, no hold’s barred, for five solid days in the company of other creative individuals? Would it be fun to do it in France?

Join me September 20-24 in the Dordogne area of France and embrace the peaceful space and energetic traction that will help you:

  • Stop procrastinating

  • Focus on your dream

  • Allow Nature to support you

  • Shift a few paradigms that might have been holding you back

  • Eat and drink in the French Tradition










Have I said the magic words yet?


I worked on my first book for 13 years before it was finally published and what helped turn the trick was the fact that I escaped to a friend’s quaint house in a lovely English village to simply write. I’ve added three other books to my own shelf since then and I still value the days of peace and tranquility that helped me complete my oeuvre.

As a book coach and editor now, I want to share that valuable boost with others. I’m inviting you to join me in one of my favourite countries in the world to focus on YOUR creative project now.


Isn’t it your turn?


We all devote ourselves to our businesses, our jobs, our families, our charitable interests, our homes, our friends, our priorities and our responsibilities. I’m offering you the chance to devote yourself to you, just you, and one profound project that brings you joy.

The Awakening Author Creative Retreat includes:

  • A one-hour intake session with me to get clarity on where you are with your project and where you want to take it next. We’ll map out a plan for massive progress going forward and get you flying forward with a clear sense of what you need to do. There will be homework!

  • One group call with the other participants to introduce everyone, share some initial insights about our creative projects and orient everyone to what to expect during our five days together


Five days together in one of my favourite areas of France, where you will have the chance to experience:

  • One-on-one time with me as your creative coach

  • Group training sessions around creativity and writing

  • Time by yourself to do whatever you wish

  • Time by yourself to work on your project

  • The chance to try your ideas out with others on the Journey

  • Walks in the local environment

  • Croissants, café and the delights of French cuisine

  • Whatever else shows up

At the end of our journey, you will also receive:

  • Two one-hour follow-up check-in calls with me to support your project

  • Access to a group Facebook Page to stay connected to our experience together

The objective is to leave you with:

  • Powerful motivation for moving forward with your project

  • A plan for completing your project

  • An accountability program so you don’t fall off the high wire

  • A greater understanding of how to bring your project to life
