Awakening The Writer Within Autumn Retreat in Poumeroux, SW France
Mon 22 Oct 2018 to Fri 26 Oct 2018
For our sixth Awakening The Writer Within retreat, we return to the lovely hamlet of Poumeroux near Massignac in SW France. Facilitators Clara Challoner Walker and Janet Dean aim to encourage and inspire new and developing writers to start something fresh or to make progress with an existing project. We welcome people interested in all fiction genres, as well as creative non-fiction and poetry

The retreat runs from Monday evening, departing Friday morning, and includes structured workshops, one to one support and free writing time.

Dates: 22-26 October 2018
Location: Poumeroux, SW France
Cost: The full cost of tuition, accommodation and all meals ranges from £395 to £595 depending on whether you want to share or prefer your own luxury en suite accommodation.

Places are limited to 10.

Amongst the feedback from our last retreat in York in June was this: ‘Awakening the Writer Within is a fantastic writer's retreat for anyone who is looking to take their writing to the next level. Clara and Janet created a supportive environment that made me feel comfortable to share my work with others. Their insights and inspiring exercises helped me develop my characters and plot in a way I hadn't been able to do before.’

Clara Challoner Walker, author of A Tapestry of Vice and Virtue, and Janet Dean Knight author of The Peacemaker, also publish short stories and poetry. They met whilst studying for an MA in Creative Writing at York St John University. Both have had previous executive careers in corporate and public life.
