Immerse yourself in your work on creative writing retreats

Creative Writing Retreats

 

Sadly our regular retreat programme ended in 2018 and we will no longer be holding four retreats a year.

However, Retreat West’s Amanda Saint will still be teaching at one-off retreats and writing festivals.

Festival of Writing

6-8 September 2019, University of York, UK

Over the weekend, Amanda will be teaching a 2-hour workshop on plotting and a 1-hour session on using flash fiction in your novel, as well as giving 1-1 book doctoring sessions to review works in progress.
