An invite from Stephen King's UK editor...
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:42:48 PM »
Hi all,

I've been discussing the plans for Get Writing with Philippa Pride, Stephen King's UK editor and also known as The Book Doctor. She asked me to share this with you, I hope you don't mind:

Dear Friends of Sandra
 
Would you or any of your friends or clients like to come to France this September?  We are gathering at a gorgeous farmhouse in the Dordogne from 10-15 September for the next Book Doctor writing course.
 
It will be a wonderful opportunity to free your creativity, start or continue your book and gather some insider tips for getting it published.
 
For more information, contact me at philippapride@yahoo.co.uk and click on the animated gif below to go through to my website www.thebookdoctor.co.uk and on the YouTube to see a short video with me;  I'm a certified NLP Coach and Stephen King's British editor.
 
There are just three rooms left now.
 
With best wishes from Philippa
 
Canalot Studios: Philippa Pride
 

For some background, this is her biog for GW:


Philippa is a writing coach, publishing consultant and book editor and runs workshops in which she combines inspirational exercises for freeing creativity with the nuts and bolts of getting published.  A former commissioning editor with a major publishing house, PHILIPPA PRIDE has worked with some of the most successful writers today, including world superseller Stephen King who knows of  ‘no-one in the writing and publishing business who is better equipped to talk about and teach the art and craft of writing’.  

Described by Hodder’s MD as ‘a talented spotter of new fiction, a creative editor and a terrific champion of her authors’, Philippa continues her connection with Hodder & Stoughton as Stephen King’s British editor and has branched out into coaching; she is a certified NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Coach.  

I can assure you that Philippa is the most genuine lady, totally encouraging and supportive and truly inspiring. I'm hoping to book up for the next course, which will be after GW. And, of course, if you can get to the UK she will be running a workshop for us and taking some One to Ones - not to be missed!

That.  Sounds.  Amazing.

How much does something like that cost?

I'm not sure, I think the one in France is a couple of hundred £'s, the Turkey one is £550 for a shared room. Best bet is to email Philippa (address in the original message) especially if you aren't UK based, that might change the fee a little.

I can tell you she is awesome, incredibly inspiring and I would think that anyone who went would get a lot out of it. I wouldn't post something I didn't believe in. Let me know if you decide to go, be great to hear about it!
