June Creative Writing and Wellbeing Weekend Retreat
Time away from the stress and noise of everyday life can make a world of difference, not just to your health and well-being, but to your creativity. If you are a writer, three blissful days of me-time in the sunshine could be just what you need to get started on your next masterpiece, or your first. It could be a chance to hone skills, to solve problems – from plot holes and loose ends to overwriting, underwriting, and even writer’s block. Or maybe it’s just enough time to get that next draft over the line. Whatever your needs, award winning writer and tutor, Lesley Hart, will provide a bespoke service, including, where requested, one-to-one tutorials, creative writing exercises, group sessions, script and manuscript reading (with constructive, supportive feedback), plus expert advice on how to develop your writing and career beyond the retreat. Writers of all ages and at all stages welcome.
