Writers’ HQ Writing Retreats 2018
Sat 5 May 2018 to Sun 27 May 2018
Writers’ HQ one-day writing retreats can now be found at six locations across the country, and if there’s not one near you now there will be soon. Join us in May in Worthing (5th), Birmingham (13th), Cambridge (19th), Cheltenham (20th), Brighton (26th) and Portsmouth (27th).

It’s been five whole years since we launched the first writers’ retreat in Brighton and in that time we’ve had people travelling hundreds of miles to come write with us because if there’s one thing we know how to do it’s get reluctant writers to sit down and do the work.

For the uninitiated, our famous one-day, butt-kicking writing retreats are about hoofing procrastination in the nadgers and saying NO MORE to the tyranny of Internet-based sidetracking. We sit you in a room with a bunch of other writers, feed you caffeine, sandwiches and biscuits, set your personal writing targets for the day, turn off the wifi and make sure you write your little socks off. Also included: gold stars for good behaviour and our pathological fear of under catering. Perf.

Retreats now run in Cambridge, Cheltenham, Birmingham, Brighton and Portsmouth. Lined up in May 2018:

5 May at Freedom Works, Worthing
13 May at Alpha Works, Birmingham
19 May at Cambridge Artworks, Cambridge
20 May at Create on the Square, Cheltenham
