Foxes' Retreat Journaling Workshops for Wellbeing and Creativity



Foxes' Retreat offers an escape from your usual routine. The change of focus will allow you to tap into your creativity, whilst we provide experiences and activities to enhance your creative writing skills, giving you a space to begin or develop your own project. This is a stand alone afternoon workshop course to develop self awareness, and to use writing to process the world around us. There is no expectation to share writing on this workshop, although discussion of the process is likely. This is suitable for those who are on a writing journey already, or those looking to find new ways to manage our new situation. Small groups with lots of supportive discussion and ideas to develop your writing. Please contact us for a relaxed chat about this and to reserve a place, particularly if you are new to writing, or a little nervous at getting going - we are here to encourage you to explore safely.

What's included in the price?

Small group live teaching of exercises to develop characters and plot for your own short story. I have a range of writers, from first time writers to professional poets and storytellers, and I create new exercises each time to stretch the thinking patterns of us all.

What you will need

A notebook, a pen/pencil, a stable internet connection and a quiet space to work in without distraction for the two hours per week of your course, as well as at other times to develop your writing, in line with your own project ambitions.


3 hours (1:00pm to 4:00pm)

Here at Foxes' Retreat we offer a relaxing and informal experience, welcoming you into our home to share our passion for writing and a love of the natural world around us. Having worked in formal education for many years, I am now offer both writing and therapy work in groups and individually. I have led workshops in varied locations in both Europe and South Africa, and now offer these from my home in the beautiful Peak District, alongside courses through ZOOM (live, not pre-recorded).
