What Is It?
Started by Chetan Mahajan, who was an ex-prisoner, this place is a paradise for all book-worms and writers in the making. Chetan Mahajan wrote a book called ‘The Bad Boys of Bokaro Jail’ while he was doing his time in the prison. This book was then published by Penguin in 2014. After his time in prison, Chetan then moved to the hills and started this retreat.
What’s In It?
If you’re having a writer’s block or struggling to get your book out there, head straight to this writer’s retreat which does workshops and lots more to get your book done as is claimed on their website here.
Chetan has organized three types of retreats – the Weekend + (four nights), the Blogger’s Retreat (four nights) and the week-long Writers’ Retreat. These workshops cater to all kinds of writers, ones who seek inspiration and ones looking for a guidance to publish their book.
Choose a programme which suits you best and be ready for some bonfire sessions around the authors and workshops that will teach you a lot about writing. Nestled in the hills, the location itself will give you inspiration to finally pen down your thoughts and get working on that book already.
The workshop will include famous bloggers like Sumit Bansal and Roy Abraham sharing lessons on persuasive language. These facilitators will further go through your piece of literature and give you a feedback accordingly to bring out the best writer in you.
Thier program includes all meals with accommodation, one-on-one sessions and workshops.
