Supporting Your Writing From Page to Page

Writing is a solitary process – but you don’t have to do it alone. Tutor led writing retreats and courses give you the chance to share that journey, while at the same time develop your writing skills.

Whether it’s your first short story or your tenth novel, a writing retreat can refresh and inspire.

In 2022, we will be offering three weekend residential retreats. Once again they will be held in beautiful Warwickshire, just a few miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon. Escape the pressure of everyday life and focus on your writing.

The dates are:

Spring Novel Writing Retreat – 1st-3rd April 2022

Summer Novel Writing Retreat – 17th-19th June 2022

Autumn Novel Writing Retreat – 30th September-2nd October 2022

These courses would suit both new and more experienced writers, and will help you develop your work, looking at plot, character arc, setting and what your book is really about. We will also offer some insights on breaking into the highly competitive publishing world.

In all our retreats, tutorials and exercises help you cultivate the skills to complete and polish a manuscript to a publishable standard. We will look at your work and offer one to one constructive advice on avoiding plot holes, saggy middles and other writing pitfalls.

Bring your questions to our friendly and informative after dinner discussions.
