The boutique Made Hotel will be your home away from home. This unique accommodation celebrates creativity with handmade luxuries. It features stylish rooms with comfortable beds. The lobby and roof provide multiple private nooks to sneak off to write or to have an impromptu meet-up with your fellow authors.

Your welcoming in-house staff will help you feel welcomed and comfortable. You will wonder at all the thoughtful modern touches that will delight your eye and have your spirit soaring. Located blocks from the Empire State Building, Chelsea, and a short distance to everything you could want to see in NYC!


This retreat is for you if:

  • You long to get your book writing project to the next step and learn what you need to know to get your book published. You could really use a big dose of self-nurturing and a lot of guidance.
  • You enjoy hanging out with smart, loving, supportive people, creating and sharing big ideas.
  • You’ve just decided you want to write a book, been putting it off for years, need to rework a book you have already published, or you’re writing your 10th book. Great! This is a “welcome-all-authors” retreat!
  • You are a coach, wellness professional, teacher, or someone who wants to inspire others. You long to get your message out into the world.
  • You are ready to embrace more career opportunities, more personal and financial freedom. ​You are oh so ready to increase your impact and your income.
  • You are ready to enjoy sharing what you know and feel proud about making your contribution to a better planet.

What you will discover:

  • Dorothy's step-by-step method to get your book written and professionally published.
  • How to avoid the common pitfalls most first-time authors succumb to due to inexperience.
  • How to discover your target audience and connect with people wanting or needing the message you wish to share.
  • How to best utilize your book to enhance your professional and personal credibility and help make you an "author-ity" on the topics you know and love so well.
  • How to write better more compelling copy!

Each morning you will wake up to a complementary energizing green drink. There will be a complementary free dinner at the rooftop restaurant, The Glass Ceiling! Then head over to Luminary for yoga and writing classes. Because it is NYC, you will be on your own to grab a few friends and enjoy one of the many local restaurants or call in for easy delivery. Each evening you'll be invited to the Made rooftop for complementary organic wine or an herbal tea, delicious healthy snack.

And remember, Dorothy wrote the book, Love Food that Loves You Back, so she will ensure the food will be every bit as healthy as it is scrumptious.​

What will you actually get out of this week?

  • You’ll feel happy and supported and feel joy! You will laugh out loud often.
  • You’ll feel less alone. Do you worry you will not fit in? That will not happen. We work in a big loving community where you will be embraced.
  • You’ll get to rest. To renew. To deeply recharge and reconnect to your strength and energy.
  • You’ll get fresh new perspective on your book and maybe your life.
  • You’ll disengage from habits of mind and body that don’t serve you.
  • And oh my, you’ll get the pleasure of being heard, appreciated and cared for. You will not have to lift a finger to cook, clean, or take care of anyone else. This sacred time out will be just for you!
  • You’ll get your book writing project moved forward to the next level and fully planned in all its steps from the magical to the mundane.

Registration requirements

This book writing retreat is open to writers of all levels, from beginner to professional. It is perfect for nonfiction writers, however, fiction writers have come and made enormous inroads. How do you know if you’re 'a writer'? Because you write and can tell stories. However, I only want you to come if you yearn to make a loving, creative commitment to yourself. If you're ready to embrace more self-expression, new career opportunities, more personal and financial freedom, then join Birth a Book. If you're ready to enjoy sharing what you know and do, and feel proud about making your valuable contribution to improve the world, then join Birth a Book.

If not now, when?

If not you, who?

Don't make 'someday' become the tragedy of 'never'.

Don't let your lifetime of experiences and wisdom be lost for posterity.

Your time is now.

If you have a dream to write a book, then why not leap on this opportunity to write it? Why not take this chance to free your creativity and make your book writing a dream come true. Why not let the vibrancy of NYC, one of the boldest cities on earth, energize and inspire you. Writing, like many things, can be a lonely pastime. But this is the opposite of that.

This is your time to find support, escape the day to day duties that keep you trapped and feeling lonely, this about being heard, embraced and encouraged so your writing will flow easier, be more focused and productive, and even be joyful. Here’s the opportunity: Stop talking about being a published author and become one instead.

You do have a book in you!

And no one else can write your story, share your message, or write your book. So, why haven’t you written it yet? No time? Crazy schedule? You don't know where to start or how to finish. Maybe you aren't even certain what you want to write about?

Come and let Birth a Book help you solve that problem while also giving you the perfect opportunity to refresh, refocus and get ready for the next new you. It's 2021. Why not make it unforgettable in a good way Last year all of our lives changed and we had so much extra stress and distraction, making life even crazier than usual. Isn't now a perfect time to move your life forward and get your book written? It's time to make your dreams come true.

The challenging year we all experienced, makes your self-expression, and your forward-moving action, more important than ever. People need to hear from you.

Write your book at the perfect work loft

Luminary innovative cooperative workspace

You will be awed by their uniquely inspirational work loft-a giant loft space with fantastic private rooms that will be all ours. We will have our own yoga studio and brainstorming room. And each participant can opt to get a free day pass to enjoy the rest of the facility during free time!

Your amazing yoga teacher will teach you attention to alignment (so important for your book and your book's purpose!) in a variety of yoga styles from gentle to advanced. She will help you free up your energy to support your creativity. Her teaching is professional yet soft. She is precise yet fun. She offers challenging yet compassionate. With her, you'll find sanctuary in the quiet calm that she creates in her classes. We are better and stronger together.

You will enjoy yoga together that will open you up, not stress you out, each morning. Then, sip on some tea and head into your Birth a Book class and workshops. You will be amazed at how much you accomplish in a short time. You’ll bond with your bright and warm new friends who will support your creative efforts as you delight in supporting theirs. This isn’t your typical writing retreat.

This writing retreat's sole aim isn't writing. This is a writing retreat that’s goal is to reach deep inside yourself and get you on your way to writing and publishing the book that is going to change your career, life, and income.

Confused, or even clueless about book writing? You're welcome too. Birth a Book will provide clarity. No matter what your reason is for wanting to write a book, or what level of clarity you have now, you will leave clearer and more confident on your way to becoming a published author.

Retreat location

New York City has experienced great triumphs and also suffered dearly. After a quiet year and a half, the city is roaring back to life. It's a perfect time to visit. As New Yorkers emerge, they are committed to welcoming others and offering vibrant celebratory energy that is characteristic of New York.

Come to discover all the messages longing to get written and shared by you. We have carefully created a cozy nook in the middle of New York for you to write, relax, recharge, and revitalize your writing. We've secured the Made Hotel (so chic and cute!) on one side of the street and our chic, and super feminine, work-loft less than 100 feet away!

You can stay nestled here, and there, or venture out for an adventure in the city if you wish. The city is magnificent during early fall with spectacular weather, park foliage, and crisp breezes. New York is filled with friendly people and amazing art, restaurants, and the world's most high-performing businesses.

You'll be surrounded by mural-like skyscrapers, not far from gorgeous parks, and the spectacular harbor that's been welcoming the weary for decades. The crisp October feel is the perfect complement to the fresh start you've been craving. Plus, there's Broadway's reopening, museums, independent movie theaters, and tons of cool outdoor café's.
