Mentoring Retreat

14th – 28th November 2020, Casa Ana, La Alpujarra, Spain

Amanda will be the resident mentor at Casa Ana for this retreat. You can spend either a week or two immersing yourself in your writing in this stunning location and Amanda can give you tailored advice and support on your novels, short fiction or memoirs. Amanda is an experienced editor and tutor, and the founder, publisher and commissioning editor of Retreat West Books, which won the 2020 Saboteur Award for Most Innovative Publisher.

Casa Ana has been featured in The Guardian and The Telegraph as one of the world’s “Best Writing Holidays” and in The Times as a Top 50 Holiday in Spain. Spend quality time with your writing in a 400 year old house in the village of Ferreirola in the Alpujarras, Andalucia, and get expert guidance to help you develop it.
