Your Day to Focus on
Becoming a Better Writer

Writing can be a lonely task. It’s just you, your thoughts and your keyboard, right? Plus, it’s really difficult to improve and pick up tips from other writers when there’s no one to guide you.

Well, it doesn’t need to be that way – at least not now!

Following on from the success of the Finesse Writers’ Club – and for the first time ever – we’re hosting the Finesse Writers’ Retreat to help you become a better and more confident writer!

In a day dedicated to writing (and helping you get paid to write), you’ll:

  • Learn from top copywriting coaches

  • Take part in writing workshops
  • Get feedback on your writing
  • Create your roadmap to content writing success

  • Meet like-minded creatives for fun and networking
  • And much more!

The Finesse Writers’ Retreat will bring together experienced and aspiring copywriters for a day of energetic and inspiring coaching, conversation and collaboration. We can’t wait to see you there!

Should I attend the Finesse Writers’ Retreat?

Yes! The Finesse Writers’ Retreat is perfect for writers of all levels – whether you’re a marketing professional, aspiring blog writer, or savvy copy creator.

We’re hosting the very first Finesse Writers’ Retreat to give you the tips, tricks and tools you need to overcome the most infuriating challenges both experienced and aspiring copywriters face every day.

In this hybrid online and in-person event, you’ll:

Unblock Your Creativity

Mindset coach Jonathan Shaw will bring us The Coach’s Guide to Writer’s Block: A Cognitive Approach to Unblocking Your Creativity. We’ll explore the nature and source of writer’s block, and understand how a radical shift in thinking can break down barriers and create a path forward. You’ll leave with the cognitive tools you need to map out your own personal approach to writing.

Improve Your Writing

Katie Lantukh, Founder and Chief Copywriter of US-based Murphy Marketing, will share The Ultimate Writer’s Checklist: Write This Way to Get Paid – just what you need to gain momentum and elevate your commercial copywriting. You’ll learn how to create killer copy with a proven step-by-step process that will keep your copywriting customers returning for more of your writing.

Plan Your Roadmap

Whether you’re starting a blog, applying for a marketing job, or launching your copywriting side hustle, every writer needs a roadmap to success! This Retreat has been designed to give you a clear way forward. You’ll leave knowing the next steps to take and with a roadmap that charts how to achieve your dream writing goals.

Let’s go!

Jo Caruana

Founder & CEO,

Jonathan is driven to transform ideas into reality, propel projects forward, find solutions, connect people and add real value for his clients. After a long career in business leadership, Jonathan opted for a change in 2015 and embarked on a sabbatical: an intense Swimrun training regime, which then led to him becoming trained in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching at the Association of Coaching in London. Now, Jonathan coaches leaders and their teams to drive success, and he also occupies various Director positions.

Katie Lantukh

Founder & Chief Copywriter,
Murphy Marketing

Katie runs US-based Murphy Marketing, a certified StoryBrand Agency that focuses on message strategy and copywriting.

Testimonials

Here’s what existing Club members have to say!

Finesse’s writing community has given me the opportunity to learn about industry changes while polishing my writing. In each coaching session, I mastered writing techniques and learned how to better promote my work.

Plus, the online community is excellent for networking. I heartily recommend Finesse to anyone who wants to elevate their writing – whether it is your first day as a writer, or your first decade.”

Laura Bonnici, Writer

I joined Finesse’s writing community because I loved writing for fun – but I soon realised I could actually get paid to write. The writing tasks were pivotal. Having my work critiqued by experts among like-minded people was a treat, and I made some wonderful connections.

If you’re looking to improve your writing and network with other copywriters, I highly recommend Finesse!”

Becky Gera, Aspiring Commercial Writer
