Writing Retreat Needed – Urgent

bbbI need to go on a one week Creative Writing Residential Retreat somewhere in the UK before the end of March 2017.

I have 6 days leave from work that have to be taken by the end of this financial year and I thought it would be good to spend them doing something I enjoy – writing.

The best option for me would be tutor-led with the opportunity to spend some time writing alone, share writing with peers and get the opportunity to have one-to-ones with the tutor to discuss my writing.

Anyone know if there are any writing retreats in their area that have space for one more?

    • I wouldn’t mind having a stab at setting up and running Creative Writing Residential Retreats – seems to me that there is a lot more demand than supply! 🙂
      Yes – a career in which one can express one’s passion is very good. Making the world a (more) beautiful place would be even better! 😀


  1. I would like to be on a writing retreat too, now that you’ve said it!!! I wish I knew where you could go…But I was at loch Katrine the other day and I was thinking to myself how wonderful it would be to sit there with a pen and a diary and write without being disturbed!!! Maybe you could consider something like that??

      • Ah a retreat in Wales sounds lovely. Do tell me how it was because I might like to go some day 🙂 and well I was working for a year (as a research associate) between my masters and this PhD and so this isn’t much different from working for me. It’s the same grill, same intensity, just a different project 🙂

      • There’s maybe one big difference between working and studying – the direction of flow of money. Unless you’re on some sort of cushy (Hindi word?) financial grant or something. 😀
        I’ll be sure to let you know how the retreat went. You know – there are some lovely retreats up there in Scotland too. One in Inverness particularly attracted me, but it would have taken me 8 hours to reach there!
        Hope you’re having a good weekend. 🙂


      • Haha flow of money! Good point. But I would’ve never chosen to pursue a PhD in one of the most expensive but best universities in the world without a fellowship 😉 you fight and compete hard for the fellowship but the flow of money is in the right direction then! Cheers to that!
