Writers’ Retreat Day 2

September 18, 2013

Participants on Writers' Retreat Day 2
As you can see from the photograph we were blessed with a beautiful sunny day for the second Writers’ Retreat Day at the Morritt Arms, Greta Bridge near Barnard Castle.
Those in the photo seem to have their thinking caps on but the day was not all hard work.
There were plenty of opportunities for networking over lunch and during refreshment breaks which split the day into three creative writing sessions. One writer described these as ‘power hours.’
This is the normal format for these creative retreats which attract both writers and artists who come together to work on personal projects in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.
All particpants achieved their goals, a few cleared creative blocks, several took advantage of 1-1 coaching/mentoring sessions with myself and everyone identified next steps for progressing their work.
Feedback from the day includes:
‘The entire day was a stimulating time.’
‘I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk to like-minded people.’
‘I enjoyed the ambience and ambition for the day – allowing personal focus and creating an atmosphere for new work.’
My next step is to source alternative venues for creative retreats with both literary and artistic connections so that participants can benefit from the challenge of producing work in a range of inspirational locations.
If you would like to attend a future retreat, please express your interest via e-mail to julema@tiscali.co.uk
