The Write Retreat
The Write Retreat is a lively, welcoming and adventurous space for those who need to escape into the wonderful world of words. MA graduates Lucy Brighton (a qualified and experienced teacher) and Andrea Hardaker (an award-winning journalist) have designed a variety of workshops to keep you engaged, focused and having fun – straight from your kitchen table or living room.
Whether you enjoy the challenge of one-off workshops or wish to develop your writing further, Lucy and Andrea are here to ensure you meet your goals. Both are published writers and members of the Northern Short Story Academy in Leeds. Between them they have organised various creative writing workshops to enable people just like YOU to have oodles of fun with words.
The emphasis on all of our sessions will be to ensure that each and every participant feels empowered, inspired and ready to take on a new challenge! And don’t worry, you go at your pace, our job is to make you comfortable.
Write to Retreat Workshop
Sunday, December 5th 2021 (10am until 12noon) Tickets £10
Make yourself a cuppa, switch on your computer and join us for a fun and explorative workshop, straight from your kitchen table. We have a whole feast of ideas to stimulate all your senses so that YOUR readers can taste, hear, see, smell and touch the worlds you create.
Interaction – Our session will be carried out online. You are invited to interact as much as you are comfortable with (cameras on or off). We know it can be excruciatingly difficult to share your words with strangers but we are here to help, not judge, and you are your own master!
Exercise – not the kind that requires lycra and running shoes, although you’re welcome to wear what you want! (pyjamas fully embraced).
Over a two-hour period, we will ensure that your pen flies over the page so that you leave our sessions with stories, phrases or even just the seed of an idea, which, of course, you are free to develop in whichever way you choose!
Inclusivity – This workshop is for anyone who would like to have a go at writing. You may be a complete beginner or you may have been writing for years and need a break from your regular projects. Whatever stage you are at, we aim to ensure you create something new and completely yours.
Feedback – We will always offer constructive feedback to help you hone your skills. We focus on the positive and will work hard to ensure that you feel listened to, respected and encouraged!
