New! 1 day writing retreat, @Spacehoppers Stroud

Spring is almost here – time to ditch procrastination and bring the time and space into your life to write. WritingSpace Stroud is back on the case post-maternity leave and offering a one day untutored writing retreat in the quiet company of like-minded individuals.

I’ve hired a brilliant location which is light, airy and very calm and spacious – the new Spacehoppers co-working venue at New Mills on the Slad Road in Stroud. There will be no internet, zero distractions and a supportive environment with resources to prompt, inspire and encourage.

Oh and as much tea, coffee and cake as a writer could need.

This one day retreat will be taking place on Sunday 15th May, 9.30-4.30pm. The cost is £25, excluding lunch.

Places are limited, as ever, so do get in touch if you’d like any more info or to book.

I just have one teeny weeny spot left… ❤

***SPECIAL OFFER*** on our Anglesey Retreat!

We’re really chuffed to say that – after so many writers expressed (somewhat forlorn!) interest in our residential retreat but said they couldn’t stretch to it right now, we strong-armed had a little chit chat with the owners and they’ve agreed to give us a discount. Woo hooo!

We can now do the weekend for £180  – that’s four nights, full board. All rooms are singles. Bargain or what?!

A non-refundable deposit of £125 can be paid to secure your place, with payment in full to be made no later than 21st February. See our residential retreats page for full details.
