Worried about Running A Retreat? Why Not Experience One For Yourself…..

When Karen Williams, Book Mentor from Librotas, sat down with her clients on the flight to Seville in September 2014, she asked herself what she needed to worry about next. It was Karen’s first writing retreat and being responsible for others while travelling can be stressful. With relief, Karen remembered that she had “no need to […]
