Writers’ HQ reignited my love of writing that had been dormant for too long. The retreats are fab and the Couch to 5k Words course has been an absolute pleasure.

LOVE FOR WRITERS’ HQ

Never done anything like this before and found the online format worked so well. Felt relaxed, and that contributed to creativity. Many thanks – will sign up for the next one next week!

Completed a first draft in 25 days! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
For anyone still unsure as to whether the online writing retreats are worth your time, I say this: I hadn’t written anything significant in months and signed up for one retreat. In those six hours I planned and entire children’s fiction trilogy I’d been mulling over. Then the lockdown happened so I signed up for all the weekend retreats and I completed the first draft of the first book in 25 days! The motivation these retreats provide is an undeniable gift. Thank you Sarah and Jo and all the other retreat hosts, I am eternally grateful. ❤️💛💚💙💜

These online writers’ retreats are invaluable!
I don’t think I could be motivated to write without them. Most productive Sunday in a long time. I wrote 1300 words! Thanks Writers’ HQ.
