EXPERTS IN KICKING WRITER-BUTT SINCE 2012

We’re experts because we get it.

We have the same problem.

We make the grandest of plans – Booker Prize winning plans. Pulitzer winning plans! – but sometimes life gets in the way.

Work. Family. Someone being wrong on the Internet. General confidence flailing. All these things are sent to keep us from our work in progress.

That’s why we’ve developed our state-of-the-art, cutting edge, highest of all high tech retreats, during which we make you sit down and get on and do the work.

Because the only way to get your writing done is to sit down and write.

What happens at a Writers’ HQ retreat?

Writing! More writing! Some more writing! A bucket-load of writing! Also much tea and biscuit eating.
Spend the day in a room with a bunch of writers, limitless caffeine and – horror! – no internet.
We’ll help you set your writing goals for the day and for the long-term, celebrate your successes, and break through blocks.
Write in timed sprints with lots of breaks for hot drinks, non-stop eating, literary chat and leg-stretching.
A score board, gold stars, general silliness and supportive competitiveness will help you reach your targets, break bad habits, and get your writing moving.
No distractions.
No excuses.
Just writing.
Perf.

What’s included?

  • All the tea and coffee you can drink
  • Morning snacks, lunch, biscuits and cake
  • A supportive environment and gold stars
  • Lots of encouragement and the lovely warm glow of finally-getting-it-done satisfaction

Who are Writers’ HQ retreats for?

  • Everyone!
  • New writers! Emerging writers! Aspiring writers! Experienced writers! Not-sure-if-they’re-really-allowed-to-call-themselves-writers! (hint: if you write, you’re a writer)
  • Writers who want to tinker with some ideas or make a start on a brand new project.
  • Writers with a work-in-progress that’s stalled or been put aside while life takes over.
  • Writers who just wanna get shit done.
  • People writing fiction, non-fiction, scripts, academic texts, copy, articles, blogs, poetry, creative non-fiction, genre, high brow, low brow, and anything else that needs an alphabet shuffle.
  • People who want to drink tea and eat biscuits and write some words in a fun, supportive environment.

Anything else I should know?

  • Writers’ HQ retreats are strictly no sharing events! We want you to focus on writing your story instead of getting anxious about other people reading it.
  • There is no workshopping or taught element to the retreats. It’s just about the writing. For taught courses please check out our superduper range of online courses.

NO DISTRACTIONS. NO EXCUSES. JUST WRITING Look, we get it. We have the same problem. We make the grandest of plans – Booker Prize winning plans. Pulitzer winning plans! – but life gets in the way. There’s a thing that needs doing or a different thing that just needs looking at or, worse, there’s someone being wrong on the Internet and you really need to explain to them why that is before you can get started. And before you know…
