Campton, KY -- 97% percent of writers have an unfinished manuscript or unwritten idea. Fortunately, Dayton-based best-selling author and award-winning publisher, Valerie J. Lewis Coleman, is working to change this statistic by hosting an intimate 3-day retreat for writers and established authors. The "Free Your Mind and the Words Will Follow" Writers Retreat will take place on November 4-6, 2019 at the Cliffview Resort Lodge in Campton, KY.

Valerie comments, "Thousands of extraordinary book concepts never make it past the idea stage because of fear. Prior to working with me, my clients had difficulty finding time to write, or they were bombarded with book ideas and had no clue what to do with them. However, by implementing my strategies, they broke through virtual restrainers to write bestsellers. This retreat allows writers to get away from day-to-day distractions to give full attention to their projects while eliminating fears that hold them hostage."

During the retreat, writers will interact with industry professionals to gain clarity, confidence and focus. Guest facilitator, Tenita C. Johnson, is a best-selling author who transitions writers into experts while positioning them to develop multiple streams of income.
