Our October retreat was the second one we have run since the lockdown restrictions were lifted and what a retreat it was. As always, the writers were from a wide and diverse range of backgrounds, all with very different projects under way and, as always, this fuelled fabulous and vibrant discussions.
The retreat venue was a new one for us (we’ve had to do much swapping around to make sure we can run safely under COVID guidelines) and it is one that we will certainly be returning to (in January, actually). With spacious rooms and gardens for peaceful writing, the hot tub and sauna offered that extra special opportunity for complete relaxation at the end of a productive day.
As it was halloween, dinner was themed appropriately and each writer arrived to the table to find a little goodie bag. It was such great fun!
Sadly, with the continued prevalence of the coronavirus and the national lockdown, we have had no choice but to cancel the November retreat. A new date, though, has been set for January and we have further retreats now booked in February and March, which will see our first retreat in the south!
If you’re reading this, we’d love to welcome you onto one of our retreats.
