Everything you need to know about Writers' HQ writing retreats is HERE.


The Loft at Cornerstone Community Centre on Church Road in Hove. You can’t miss it, it’s the giant freakin’ church just as you get to Church Road travelling from Brighton.

It’s on a major bus route along Church Road between Hove and Churchill Square, Brighton (buses 1, 2, 5, 6, 25 and 49) and is 15 minutes walk from Hove mainline train station.

Parking is… well you know what parking is like in B&H…Norton Road Car Park is a five minute walk and is only a fiver for the day, or there’s on-street parking but tends to be expensive and only short stay.


jo sqBrighton Writers' Retreat is headed up by Jo Gatford, co-founder of Writers' HQ and a human who procrastinates about writing by writing about writing. Her novel White Lies won the Luke Bitmead Bursary and was published by Legend Press in 2014. She’s also had a bunch of short fiction published, nabbed a (different) Arts Council grant to write the (shitty) first draft of her next novel, is attempting a screenplay adaptation of the first book, and is currently elbow-deep in an MA in Shakespeare because she’s a literary badass/masochist. Jo is the queen of editing, swearing on social media, and flip-chart facilitation.
