Introduction to creative writing retreat



How will a Writing Retreat at Foxes’ Retreat help me?

This is a TUTORED RETREAT with two half-day workshops on each day and time to discuss work in progress as it is developing.
You will give yourself dedicated time and support to refine your craft.
You will have time in a calm, comfortable and welcoming space to explore your projects, giving yourself an ‘intelligent’ break from normality.
The time here will facilitate progress on your writing project(s), whatever your level or stage.
You will meet new people, writers like yourself, and feel supported and understood.
You will be able to reset and recharge yourself in a space that you deserve; just what is needed for allowing your writing to flow across those pages once more!

We are easy to get to, yet well away from busy lifestyles. Foxes’ Retreat is located twenty minutes from Uttoxeter and Derby train stations. Derby is an hour and ten minutes on the mainline from London, St Pancras

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
