Annual NAWE Retreat

Take Your Time to Write

The last NAWE Annual Retreat ran from Monday 6th to 11th April 2015.

This popular retreat for NAWE members was in partnership again with Lapidus, the national organisation that promotes writing for health and well being.

Our retreat took place at Ty Newydd, The National Centre for Writing in Wales and had a theme of writing for personal development that participants are welcome to dip into if they so wish. The retreat had a great atmosphere with plenty of discussion about arts, health, education, finding time to concentrate on the craft of writing and some fantastic readings.

The week included a morning workshop to kick-start personal writing ideas, run by Liz Cashdan and a Lapidus writer.

Ty Newydd

Ty Newydd was once the home of Lloyd George. Situated in North Wales, about twenty-five miles from Bangor, it stands in landscaped gardens with fine views over Cardigan Bay and towards the mountains of Meirionydd. It is very easy to get to by public transport.

The NAWE Retreat provided unstructured time in which to recharge batteries. It helped redress the balance between working in education and developing your career as a writer.  

To be informed about the next NAWE retreat, why not become a member and receive the weekly bulletin, which is full of opportunities to develop your practice.

Ty Newydd is the National Writers' Centre for Wales, supported by the Arts Council of Wales and run by the Taliesin Trust Ltd, a registered charity. It operates in close collaboration with Arvon.
