Next Retreat …

Holme Valley

Five nights overlooking the beautiful Holme Valley
Sunday 27 June – Friday 2 July

Following the success of her writing retreat in Italy, which she has been leading for over six years, Glynis Charlton has now added one in the UK … in glorious Pennine Yorkshire.  Spend five nights with bed, breakfast, light lunch and evening meal, surrounded by rolling hills, traditional dry stone walls, and nature at its very best.
Glynis’ retreats are known for being friendly, supportive and informal, and she deliberately keeps group numbers small. There are just seven residential places available for this new venture in Yorkshire and, whether you’re a complete beginner or just want to kick-start something you’re already working on, everyone is welcome. 

Create characters, put them in settings, get them talking and see what they get up to. By the Friday your notebook or tablet will be jam-packed with writing and ideas.  There are four workshops full of prompts to get you started, two one-to-one feedback sessions per writer with Glynis, an optional guided walk led by photographer Andy Leader, and plenty of delicious home cooked food.
