Retreats

STOP THE CLOCK…

Immerse yourself in a weekend dedicated to your writing 
Date: 4pm Friday 22nd of June 2018 to 2pm Sunday 24th of June 2018

This weekend retreat is all about getting you and your writing off the ground. Whether you’re new to your creative practice and need some help kick starting your project, or you’re stuck half way through and need to get your mojo back – this retreat will provide you with the time and the tools that you need to get the words flowing.

Friday evening.

Over supper and drinks in the bar, we’ll discuss our ongoing writing projects and ideas. Whether it’s an idea for a short story or a novel that you’re in the middle of writing – we’ll chat about the obstacles that are preventing you from achieving your writing goals.

Saturday

After breakfast, we’ll have a walk around Rosely Country House Hotel’s beautiful grounds to help stir our inspiration, before going into the main workshop:

The truth about writers’ block: overcoming the bumps on your writing road

The afternoon will be set aside for private writing time, and pre-arranged one-to-one sessions where you can receive feedback on your writing. Our evening meal will be followed by drinks in the bar and a chance to share your work around a roaring fire.

Sunday

After a word exercise, to keep the inspiration flowing, we’ll go into the Sunday’s workshop, which is:

Making each word count: prioritising writing when life gets busy

After lunch, we will draw up a plan of action on how to keep the weekend’s momentum going and discuss how we are going to take our writing forward.
