Retreats

Retreats start on Monday evening with a welcome talk from staff at 6.30pm and an evening meal. After dinner, your group may decide to spend time together introducing yourselves and your writing interests. For the rest of the week you are free to plan your own day around the set mealtimes and your one evening cooking team slot at 4pm. Sometimes writers on retreat decide to share work with each other on the final night – this is entirely optional.
