This was my first writer’s retreat, and it exceeded my expectations. I received helpful feedback and meaningful critique. The hosts were full of amazing tips. As a writer new to Scotland, the hosts also provided invaluable information on the writing community here. Loved meeting like minded fellow writer’s to spend a lovely weekend at a beautiful country hotel! What a great way to kick start some writing projects. Looking forward to the retreat in November!
I enjoyed a productive and inspirational weekend with the Chasing Time Writing Retreat in the heart of Angus. Not only did I get a breakthrough on my current project as a result of the feedback I received and the time to write, the workshops also gave me invaluable ideas for further writing. The setting of Rosely House Hotel is stunning and very atmospheric. There were a great cast of participants too who made every session a delight. But most of my praise will be heaped on the directors – who choreographed every moment of the weekend with the lightest of touches so that although I was worked hard, it never felt that way. I felt as though I was being set free. Can’t wait to book in to the next one as I know it will be just the topup I will need to keep my writing on track.
A unique and priceless experience. Coming together with people who love the same thing as you is just magical. The retreat is hosted a grand palatial country house hotel in Arbroath, Scotland. With workshops set out across the weekend and informal one to one sessions with a best selling author. I thoroughly enjoyed my writing retreat and I am going back for the next one in November. If you love writing and need some support and guidance then this is a safe place to come and share your work. Also I should add I am very shy and usually group settings would be hard for me. However not at Chasing Time Retreats there is no pressure and the hosts are so very kind and caring.
A most encouraging, informative and inspiring weekend. I found the quality and personal nature of the feedback, the fireside readings and the shared learning/conversations most useful and enjoyable, as well as the passion for writing and literature present in the Chasing Time crew and participants.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend with lots of stimulating discussions and readings as well as good workshops to get us started. Thanks to you all for providing a great venue and lots of good feedback.
I really enjoyed this writing retreat. There was just the right balance between workshops (which were well organised and helpful) and free time (I completed a short story). Elizabeth, Dawn and Sandra led a fun and inspirational weekend. I’d recommend it.
