Escape and Write


Do you ever find that the demands of life leave little room for getting on with your writing? Why not get together with a group of friends for a writers’ day-retreat – build your writers’ toolkit, and make space to come away from your usual writing spaces and let the words flow!

Three hours of tips, tools and techniques for creative writing – this can be tailored to suit participants’ interests and needs – and three hours just to get on with your writing!

Ideal for groups of 4-5 people but we can make space for up to 12. During the say we’ll have a few facilitated exercises to support each other in expressing what’s most meaningful to each person, and share challenges, tips and techniques along the way. We’ll practice some activities that you can keep up your sleeve for getting your creative juices flowing, and you’ll be supported to consider the purpose and potential impact of your writing project. You’ll also create a brief timeline and plan for finishing your writing project, if desired, and start to ponder the next steps for when it’s finished. And, of course, three hours in the afternoon for you just to write!! 

  • 10am – 4:30pm on a Saturday to suit you and your group.
  • Bring your own lunch, and I’ll provide an unlimited supply of hot drinks & biscuits!
  • The cost is £25 per person, or £15 for anyone receiving Universal Credit.
