Writers’ Mutual: Retreat
Mon 29 Aug 2016 to Sun 4 Sep 2016
Hosted at a 17th Century farmhouse among the vineyards of Bordeaux, this week-long retreat for writers is designed to provide time and space for you to develop your work - only one place remaining!

Hosted at a 17th Century farmhouse among the vineyards of Bordeaux, this one-week retreat for writers is designed to provide time and space for you to develop your work, be it a novel, a full-length non-fiction piece, or a portfolio of shorter writing; smooth out any tangles; and receive detailed professional feedback on your work. Enjoy the comfort of this welcoming location, and spend days writing at the fireside, or looking out on the French countryside.

There will be the opportunity to workshop pieces of writing throughout the week, both in a group format, led by an experienced feedback facilitator, and in one-to-one consultations, tailored to your requirements. You’ll be able to step back from your work and get an overview.

Retreat package includes:

• Time and space to write
• One-to-one mentoring
• Daily access to an experienced writing coach/novelist
• Regular group critique sessions
• Feedback on your writing
• Country peace with convivial hosts
• Choose from shared rooms or a room of one’s own
• 6 nights’ full board** (arrive Mon, leave Sun)
• Home-cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner
• Refreshments, teas, coffees and wine included
• Full access to internet via wifi

Cost:
£350 full board sharing a room
£450 for a room of one’s own

** There's only one meal that won't be provided (on the Wednesday night, and simply to give the cook a break!) During the summer there is a Wednesday evening market in Meilhan (5km away) with great local food and ambiance - long trestle tables, band, get whatever food you want from the stands, etc.
