Spring Writing Retreat at Grendon Court, Ross on Wye, Herefordshire. March 19 – 22, 2020, Contact us for bookings >
Writing retreats in private homes twice a year for small groups of writers
For many writers, the biggest stumbling block in writing a novel is finding the time and mental headspace to actually sit down, be inspired and write.
Our retreats in Spring and Autumn offer you the chance to write in peace and to explore and develop your skills alongside support from one of our editors. We also invite guest authors to give workshops and evening readings and there’s an opportunity to meet a literary agent or publisher to give an insight into the world of publishing.
At our next retreat 19 – 22 March 2020 at Grendon Court in Herefordshire, award winning novelist Alice Jolly will give an afternoon workshop on Point of View and Voice as well as an evening reading. There will also be an afternoon workshop run by a leading literary agent which will focus on agent submissions.
Tutors at previous retreats have included best selling authors Tessa Hadley, Claire Fuller, Louise Doughty and Marcel Theroux as well as Doubleday publishing director Kirsty Dunseath, publishing director at Penguin Random House Selina Walker,and literary agents Caroline Wood, at Felicity Bryan Associates and Antony Harwood
Guests stay in beautiful private homes, often with a strong literary heritage, in comfortable and spacious boutique-style accommodation. There’s an emphasis on good, healthy food with three meals a day provided by an accomplished cook with ingredients sourced locally as well as from our hosts’ kitchen gardens.
