There’s always one more thing to do, or one more stupid thing to look at on the Internet. Before you know it, it’s gone midnight, you’re sitting in your pants eating Dairy Milk, and you’ve written 25 words. Ugh. That’s why we’ve developed our retreats, in which we turn off the wifi and make you get on with it.
Because the only way to get your writing done is to sit down and write.
What happens at a Writers' HQ writing 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 together in short bursts – long enough to focus but not so long you burn out – with breaks for leg stretches, drinks, snacks and lunch.
A score board, gold stars, general silliness and supportive competitiveness will help you reach your targets and get your writing moving.
No distractions. No excuses.
Just writing. Perf.
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.
