Willowbrook Creative Writing Retreat is A weekend of writing workshops and activities facilitated by some incredibly talented writers. Our Post-pandemic return in 2022 was a roaring success and we are delighted to be able to bring the event to you again for 2023. The Retreat includes performances / readings and workshops by 3 extremely talented writers, an open mic session, and lots and lots of fun throughout the weekend.

Your accommodation and all your meals are included in the ticket price. Shortly after arrival on Friday evening we will share some pizza freshly baked in our wood fired pizza oven (gluten free and vegetarian options available. There will be continental breakfast each morning. We will break up the Saturday with lunch in the early afternoon, and dinner on Saturday will be provided by highly recommended local caterer. Expect delicious. Vegan options will be available.

Accommodation will be in one of our extremely cosy yurts or other glamping units which you will share with other retreat attendees. We do have different types of accommodation units which some of you may be familiar with so it will be first in best dressed if you have a preference!!! If you have friends coming to the retreat, please let us know and we will do our best to place you in the same accommodation. For those who wish to camp (including campervans or caravans) or locals who do not require accommodation, there will be a limited number of discounted tickets which will include all workshops and meals.

This will be a judgement free weekend, for those who feel comfortable sharing their work, there will be an opportunity to do so on the Saturday evening when we will have a little open mic session, but of course there is no obligation on anyone to read or perform.
