A weekend of writing workshops and activities facilitated by some incredibly talented  writers. This is our fourth creative writing retreat. It involves readings / performances by the different facilitators, a full day of workshops, an open mic session, all your meals provided, and a novel little activity to close out the weekend.

So, some details:

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 before booking 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.

On Friday evening, after we eat, we will have readings by all of the facilitators who will be running workshops the next day. Saturday you will have the opportunity to attend 3 different workshops. There will be some spare time to go for a walk or to work on some of the things explored during the workshops, and in the evening we will have an open mic, where you will have the opportunity to share with the group something created during the day, or previously. This will be a judgement free weekend, and there is no obligation on anyone to read or perform during the open mic.

The Facilitators for this wonderful weekend will be announced very soon.
