Retreat West Author Membership

Write more, learn more, submit more

Become a Retreat West Author Member to get inspiration and motivation in your inbox with weekly emails containing writing prompts, tips and advice. You can use them on your own, in your writing group, at home and when you’re out and about.

You’ll also get exclusive and curated content to help you develop your writing; competition entries; discounts on courses and retreats; books; plus access to a private Facebook group where you can share and get feedback on your work from other members.

Membership is for one year and there are five membership levels available, which can be paid monthly or get 2 months free by paying in full. Signup using the buttons below.

This membership covers novel, short story and flash fiction writing. But if you are just interested in flash fiction we have a dedicated Flash Membership just for you.

You can get a free trial sample of the weekly emails that our Author Members receive, which are filled with writing prompts, inspiration and advice. The writers who have already joined our community have voted the weekly emails as the number one benefit of membership.

You can also buy a membership as a gift. Get the info on that here.
