Do you want to develop your writing voice?  Are you a blocked writer? 

Would you like to improve your writing, discover techniques to edit your work ready for feedback or print? 

Or would you simply enjoy exploring your creativity alongside like-minded people in a stunning location with all your meals prepared?  If so, then this weekend is for you. 

With Christine, who lives in the beautiful Gara Valley, develop your voice in creative writing sessions.   Then explore how nature and found materials inspire our creative process with a guided literary walk around the valley and writing in the wild.

By the fireside, share author Belinda Seaward’s story of how she developed her ideas into a finished draft and found a publisher.  How do you get published?  She’s happy to answer your questions.

Learn from Anne how to edit your writing to produce a professional, finished piece of work ready for feedback or for print.  The weekend includes a one-to-one session with Anne giving you considered feedback on your writing that you submit earlier.

Imagine: a room of your own. In an atmospheric, comfy stone cottage by an historic 18thC former watermill and stream in 20 acres of south Devon’s AONB.  Virtually untouched by the modern world, the coastal Gara Valley has a unique and inspirational literary history.  Far from the madding crowd you’ll find yourself immersed in revitalising natural energy.  It’s a full moon that weekend.

All your meals & refreshments are included, freeing you to be creative.  Lunch & supper are home-cooked using locally grown organic standard ingredients.  Breakfast is at your leisure in your cottage.  Cake is baked by Emily of Queen Bee Cakes. 

Accommodation, facilitation, tuition, speaker, food, refreshment, materials & log fires are included in the price of £475. There are just ten places.  And you’re welcome to stay on to write or relax for the rest of the week at no extra cost on a self-catering basis.
